Reflection: Checks for Understanding Addition Strategies Review and Fluency - Section 2: Whole Group Interaction


I was really surprised of the choices they made for what strategies they used to solve addition. I slap my own hand to not realize, of course these are the choices they would make! I taught it and taught it well.  It should not have been a surprise at all. They made good choices. We as teachers need to trust in our students ability to think and problem solve without us trying to spoon feed them the answers. It is very informative to just stand back after teaching strategies and allow them the freedom to pick and choose and solve for themselves. Check out my Strategies reflection video and enjoy watching your kiddos amaze you.
