Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Subtraction: Using Objects - Section 2: Group Interaction

I really like how this lesson provided all my learning styles interaction with this lesson. I cannot emphasize enough that the game selected really made the difference. This game provided my visual learners the chance to see the whole number get smaller when one part of the problem disappeared.  My kinesthetic learners were able to come up and touch the items and make them go away.  My auditory learners were able to hear the sound effects of the game.  Each part that went away made a noise and we verbally stated the problem and new answer. It really allowed a diverse entry point for all my students to be engaged.

Big Idea: Interacting with games on the Smart Board always appeals to my students and boost their interaction. My students will practice "take away" using a website game and "hands on" using cubes.
