## Reflection: What Are Numbers? Introducing 9 & 10 - Section 2: Presentation of Lesson

My students love moving around, so they loved the Number March portion of this lesson.  This song though, has a lot of movements that require space and a bit of organization to keep everyone safe.  Prior to starting this activity, I had all of the students move so that they could spread their arms out and not hit anyone, and it worked great for the ant go marching one by one.  When we got to the spiders crawling two by two we ran into some problems.  Some fingers were stepped on and some head to head collisions occurred.  Once we all got calmed down, I ended up putting the students into a line across the room so that they could crawl without hitting each other.  This took a lot of time away from focusing on the numbers.  When I do this lesson in the future, I will have the group of students in the front of the room do all of the movements, but I will only have the whole class do the movements that they can do in place.
