Reflection: Joy More Unit Rates Fluency - Practice, Practice! - Section 2: Explore


I think this activity was a much needed break for my kids.  Students were VERY excited to get the chance to practice this important skill in a relaxing setting.  During the activity I went from group to group helping as needed.  In my lowest block of students, I rearranged a few of the seats based on my observations from the previous lesson, placing students with homogeneous groups.  Thus, I was actually able to sit with the lowest group so that I could keep them focused and working.  I am very pleased with how smoothly the lesson went, and will definitely do another activity like this one in the future.
