## Reflection: Joy Using Rounding to Estimate - Section 3: Group or Partner Activity

The students love to play games.  The last time we played a game for a lesson, the next day the students came in my room asking if we were going to play that game again.

The students loved this game as well.  Whenever they get a chance to interact with their classmates, they are happy.  As a teacher, I try to make my class interactive as much as possible.

One thing you may want to take into consideration when putting the students in group for this game is the level of the students.  If I could change one thing about my lesson, I would have grouped the lower level students in the same group.  A few of the lower level students were getting frustrated when they could not beat their team mates.  I encouraged them and told them that they were doing a great job because most of them could work the problem, but just not as quickly as some of their classmates.
