## Reflection: Equal Groups (Review) - Section 2: Presentation of Lesson

Working with partners is a great way for all students to get a chance to actively participate in the lesson and share their ideas.  I have students return to their seats to do this in my classroom because my carpet is small and the students would not have very much room to work.  Since this is the first time that my students are doing a partner activity, I check in with every pair (some more than once) to make sure that they know what to do and are staying on task.  You can differentiate your instruction at this time based on the students needs.  For one group that was really struggling, I took a piece of paper and put 3 red dots and 3 green dots on it.  I had the students match a color tile to each dot to form their equal groups.  Both groups at one of my tables got finished very quickly.  I set out a set of unequal groups for them to look at and decide what they needed to do to make the groups equal.
