Reflection: High Expectations Sensational Sixteen! - Section 2: Independent Practice


When learning teen numbers, students often make mistakes with everything from pronunciation to number writing. For instance, students are often inclined to say "sixty" instead of "sixteen." When I hear a student mistakenly say "60" for "16, " I make an inquisitive face and repeat, "You said '60.'" if the student remains quiet, I will continue to press, asking, "60?" or "16?" stressing the "teen" part. The student almost always self-corrects, and I will restate for the student, "Oh, that's right, 16!" with a smile. It's entirely possible to truly attend to precision (MP.6) in a way that is kind and respectful, and that most importantly, encourages children to be keenly aware of their own understanding.
