## Reflection: ELL Students Big Groups and Big Products - Section 1: Lesson Introduction

I have a lot of ELL students so it is important that I model and have great visual examples in my classroom. One thing that is very important here for my students is to ensure that they can both articulate that multiplication is equal groups, but that they can refer to visual models in order to show what the problem represents. I encourage you to incorporate this!
