## Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Deal Me A Number - Section 6: Closure

I found out quickly that I should not assume that kids play board games at home with their families. It became apparent that the students may play games at home, but they are video games that are played with more than one player at the same time. The kids did not have a clue on how to take turns or be patient. I stopped the lesson within the first round and began giving them step-by-step instructions guiding them through the first two rounds. I went deliberately slow so the proper procedures were emphasized. They were able to conduct themselves properly for the rest of the game.
