## Reflection: High Expectations 10 More and 10 Less - Section 3: Independent Practice

During the independent portion of the lesson, I found that some of my students were having difficulty in grasping the concept of 10 more or 10 less.  For those students, having them use base ten blocks or drawing pictures helped them to visualize the number instead of continuing the pattern.  It is important for the students to understand the concept of 10 more or 10 less and not just note the pattern.  When getting into higher numbers, such as 97, they must understand that 10 more will be in the hundreds.
