## Reflection: Lesson Planning What Are Numbers? - Practicing 1, 2, & 3 - Section 2: Presentation of Lesson

For this lesson, I had students look for things in the classroom that came in groups of one, two and three.  When planning this lesson, I forgot to look around our classroom to make sure that there were things that came in groups of one, two and three.  The students easily found that there was one tree, one little table, one jelly bean table, one sink, etc.  They also found that there were two computers and two of a similar shaped book shelf.  When we got to three, the students were having a hard time coming up with something and so was I!  I could not find anything in our classroom that came in a group of three.  Finally one of the students saw that I had three grass skirts hanging up as window decorations.  When doing this lesson, make sure that you look around your classroom to make sure that there are things that come in groups of one, two and three.  You could also make some small changes to your classroom setup to bring in more options.  For example when I teach this lesson next year, I may borrow another teacher chair from next door so that we had two teacher chairs and move one of our small tables into the hallway so that for this lesson there were only three small tables.
