## Reflection: Checks for Understanding How Do We Write Numbers? - Practicing & Writing 0 - Section 2: Presentation of Lesson

I have the students complete the worksheet on their own today as a check for understanding.  At this point, we have spent two weeks working on the numbers 0 to 5.  We will be spending a few more days on these numbers as we learn to compare and order them, but at this point I wanted some data on whether the students were able to count and write the numbers 0 to 5.  I thought that I had a pretty good idea of where students were based on my observations, but I was actually surprised when I reviewed these sheets.  I found several students who I thought were doing very well were still having trouble writing 2 and 5.  This helped me create small groups for the remainder of this unit.  It also helped me decide what to focus on during these small group lessons.  For my class, I need to focus on how to write the number 2 and 5.
