## Reflection: Lesson Planning What is Division - Section 3: Closing

Usually I would assign homework for this lesson, but it is a Friday at the beginning of the school year, so I opted not to.  I will most likely assign a journal entry as homework next week with a similar prompt using a different number of "cookies".  The students can use manipulatives at home to work through this thinking.  Any work in this area is beneficial, as the practice of multiplication and division is a key thread in the upcoming learning in third grade.
