## Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Model and Write Numbers to 30 - Section 5: Independent Practice Part 2

This activity helped me see exactly who is still struggling with fluency in counting and who knew automatically what came next.  This is going to turn into a regular activity in my room because it was so valuable.  I will continue to do individual counting sheets also, but I like how this method pushed them to be faster.  When they are completing a counting sheet on their own, I can never get them to hurry. Even if I use a timer or count down procedure, it just doesn't seem to matter.  It seemed to make a difference to make it a game where your group was relying on you and helping you along. See my video of one group's progress through the game, in the resource section.
