Reflection: Checks for Understanding Subtraction: Using Objects - Section 3: Independent Practice and Informal Assessment


I am nearing the end of this unit and this lesson is sort of a "last ditch" effort to grab all my kiddos and really tackle subtraction.  The lesson allowed all my different learning styles to participate, so I felt it was necessary to check for true understanding on all my students before completing any summative assessment.  The sticky notes were an excellent way to capture every student's understanding.  I actually only kept the sticky notes of the students who were still struggling, which were only 2.  I liked using the sticky notes more than just a piece of paper because I was able to stick them on my desk as a reminder that I want to call those students aside and practice more subtraction problems with them.

Subtraction: Using Objects

Unit 4: Understanding Subtraction
Lesson 8 of 10

Objective: SWBAT subtract using objects.

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.
