## Reflection: Relevance Odd or Even - Section 4: Summarizer

Because my students have spent a great deal of time working with addition number sentences, the part/part/whole concept, and how numbers work together in an addition sentence, I decided to try to have my students make the connection between even and odd numbers and addition sentences.  I spent this time in the Summarizer section of the lesson to show my students what would happen if we add two odd numbers together.  What do they think would happen if we added two even numbers together?  What about an odd and even number together?  I want them to see how the numbers work together to create odd and even sums.  It is my hope that they will see the relevance in odd and even numbers, as applied to varying math concepts.
