## Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Hurry Up! Exploring Place Value with a Ten Frame - Section 4: Independent Practice and Informal Assessment

Wow!  Isn't it great when you see instruction come together and realize that your students really have a grasp of a concept, especially one that you thought might be challenging for them?  We have spent so much time working with these ten frames, and something amazing happened.  It was like a switch was flipped.  My students understand it!  They get it.  I was absolutely amazed how they counted for me, showing their understanding that a full ten frame is "ten" and counting on from that point.  They are learning that a number can be broken down into tens and ones.  This will be a lot of fun to further explore in upcoming lessons.

It was a long hard road to get to this point, but as you see the videos of my students counting, it is clear that get this concept.  "Going slow to go fast" really paid off with this instruction around this concept.
