## Reflection: Comparing Numbers to 10 - Section 4: Closing

The student that I had share today did a great job explaining how to compare two groups of objects.  He is one of my higher students who does not frequently want to get up in front of the class to share.  I asked him during small group if he would be willing to share and gave him some time to get used to the idea.  I think that having that time to prepare really helped him get the courage to come up.  Being able to construct arguments, and explain your thinking in math, is a critical mathematical practice (MP3). In order to articulate your mathematical reasoning, it has to be reasoned through - made sense of. Once he was in front of the class, he took on the role of teacher and did a fabulous job!
