## Reflection: Checks for Understanding Understand Tens and Ones - Section 3: Independent Practice

As the students are working, I like to walk around and check their work.  I use this opportunity to ask them "Why" questions to get them to explain their reasoning for their answer.  This is a great way to get the students to use math vocabulary fluently and accurately, which will help them to understand and explain their reasoning.
