## Reflection: Organizational Systems Properties of Isosceles Triangles - Section 1: Do Now

This was the first time this year I used the 6-tab organizer so I had to take a little more time to explain how to create the foldable. While the students take notes, I demonstrate how the notes should be organized. To make it easier for my students to follow, I have them use the same colored papers as I do and place the papers in the same order. Some of my students wanted to use different colors or place their papers in a different order from me. I explained why I wanted them to use the same colors and order as me. However, some students folded their papers differently, unintentionally. I had to go over to these students individually in order to help them follow.
