## Reflection: Trust and Respect Larger Number Patterns - Section 2: Playing A Game

It is easy to play this game without saying the numbers out loud and by just having one child look at the two numbers and pick the largest one. I work with the children to show them how important it is to say the numbers out loud and then to have both members of the group compare the numbers.  I let them know that I trust them to play the game correctly. Trusting students and letting them know that you trust them is important in the classroom. This game is one that clearly requires trust, because it would be so easy to not bother to practice reading the larger numbers.

As I circulate around I listen to how the partners are playing the game. Are they both saying the numbers? Is one partner doing all of the work? Do both partners understand the task?

If I see a group that is not saying the numbers out loud, I ask them what the steps of the game were? Do they think they are playing it correctly? What might they need to do differently? I am letting the students take ownership for their behavior rather than just telling them what they must do.
