## Reflection: High Expectations Counting 0-10 - Section 6: Closure

While this lesson was much more challenging for my students than the preceding lessons, it went much smoother and surprisingly faster. The contributing factor was that they had gotten accustomed to the expectations, the format and the goal. They knew exactly what to do before I even asked them to (I did make them wait for instructions each time though). I was pleasantly surprised at how autonomous counting larger quantities had become. I love when my students can accurately count objects to 10 because then we are able to play independent counting games to reinforce the concept. Any student that appeared to be lacking confidence or organization while counting was noted on my observation record sheet and pulled into a small group during math intervention time.
