Reflection: Checks for Understanding Assessment Follow Up - Section 2: Practice Centers


I found today's lesson to be very important to my own comfort level with moving on to new topics. I gave an assessment and realized that students had no idea how many sides a pentagon had, or what the term quadrilateral meant. I also had been doing ongoing assessments and had 4 students who still did not understand the hands on the clock. I also had noticed that students had trouble adding a group of numbers. 

I took the time today to review all of these things. It gave students an extra day of practice before I moved on. I want to be sure that my students have grasped concepts before I present new ones. I know that for some students the understanding is stronger than for others, but as long as I keep presenting the things that students struggle with, either with review days, or in daily warm ups, I am working to meet the needs of each child. 

Meeting the Common Core standards is more than presenting them. I need to make sure that students deeply understand the material and can use it in new situations.
