## Reflection: Relevance I Don't Like Either One! - Section 4: Independent Practice and Informal Assessment

This lesson was so relevant to the students.  Children are always expressing things they like or do not like.  I was able to build on student interests to have the students practice their counting and comparing skills.  Also, because their likes and dislikes are considered, students feel validated in this work experience. It is "their" work. As a result, students were so engaged and energized.  I observed some of my students who struggle with their counting really trying hard because they were so engaged.  I took this activity and expanded it to my morning meeting time by creating several Venn diagrams for the SMARTBoard that I display in the morning.  The students move their names to answer the question posed by the Venn diagram.  It helps me take attendance and it is an engaging way to include math at the start out the day!
