## Reflection: Flexibility Any Order - Section 4: Summarizer

During this lesson, I found that because I had spent so much time with introducing adding in any order with fact families and simple addition sentences in my first unit, I didn’t have to spend a lot of time on this lesson.  It was a strategy that the children had a solid understanding of before we even began the lesson.  However, what they did struggle with was the understanding of how they could use it to help them with their basic fact recall.  I always make sure to take time during these lessons to have children identify how they can use the strategy.  It is not useful unless it can be applied.  We spent a larger part of our lesson on the Summarizer because I needed the children to understand that if they can accurately and quickly recall one fact, then they can recall the turn around fact.
