## Reflection: Shared Expectations More, Less or Equal? - Comparing Numbers 0 to 5 Review - Section 2: Presentation of Lesson

When I introduced the game today, some of the students wanted to know what they got if they won.  I told the students that we were just playing for fun and if someone won, they needed to just start over and play again.  Even so, some students got very upset when they did not win or any time that their partner took the cards.  Playing this game really showed me which of my student need to work on social skills such as taking turns and sharing.  We play a lot of games during centers throughout the year, so it is very important that the students learn how to play a game with a partner or a group without fighting.  During this lesson, I also learned that my students are relying heavily on being rewarded and we need to work on playing games and accomplishing tasks to learn and have fun rather than because a reward is being given.
