## Reflection: Staircase of Complexity A Remainder of One - Section 2: Concept Development

You can listen to this audio file to hear my thoughts about this lesson.  I did leave this lesson for a guest teacher and received a very positive note from the guest teacher about how the lesson went.  Since this lesson incorporated manipulatives, that is always an area of worry or concern when leaving guest teacher plans.  I knew the guest teacher I would have in my classroom beforehand, so I knew that using manipulatives was something she was comfortable with and used to. If I had not known that, this lesson could prove to be difficult and frustrating for a guest teacher in terms of class management and student focus when using the manipulatives.
