Reflection: Conferencing Problem Solve with an Organized List - Section 3: Independent Practice


When my students are completing independent work, I am either walking the room and checking as they work, or I have them bring their work straight to me when they are finished, so I can check it immediately. This gives me the opportunity to catch mistakes in the moment and not allow misunderstandings to occur. If you watch the video in the resource section (helping student with chart), you will see that my student made mistakes on her chart that steered her off course, and she would have never reached the correct answer if I didn't point them out to her. I designed the charts to have a pattern to provide a support to my students if they were still struggling with counting sets of tens. She did not identify this pattern at first and I'm not sure how she ended up switching from counting number of students to counting by tens, but, by pointing out the pattern above, she was able to see what needed to be erased and changed to make better sense.
