## Reflection: Relevance Get Your Game on and Subtract Fluently with Multi-digits! - Section 4: Closure

Games are always fun and these are my favorite for subtraction. They are easy and fun to do with all levels of students. It is easy to differentiate because I planned my partners very carefully. I have a few students with difficulty lining up numbers in place value and it really turned up in Ask & Give. I thought of using graph paper about half way through the game. Next time, for these students, I will get it out. That way, there is more chance for  accuracy.

An easy and fun time.
