## Reflection: Joy Where Do I Belong on the Number Line? - Section 3: Group Work

I truly believe that teaching can be fun and engaging for students. There are many ways I could have approached number lines for this lesson, but I felt that allowing students to create their number line with their group would help accomplish 2 things. First, it allows me to see, in real time, what misconceptions there are around number lines and with the white board markers we can erase and try again. Secondly, it allows students to extend their thinking of number lines when they have to pull question cards to think about moving along their number lines. The more hands on I can be in my classroom, the more excited my students are about learning. I thought this activity went really well and is something I will definitely do again.

## Big Idea: A number line follows the same pattern between each whole number and I can locate points even when some of the numbers are missing.
