## Reflection: Real World Applications The 100th Day: More Practice Skip Counting by 10s - Section 3: Guided Practice

In the previous lesson I taught on counting by 10s, I was concerned about the students' level of understanding of skip counting by 10s.  There were a few students who had not moved past rote counting by 10s.  I think this lesson made an important connection for those students.  It really helped them to understand that when we are counting by tens, we are saying a number that represents a group of ten objects.

It is so much fun to come up with real-world tasks that help teach a mathematical concept.  Carrying out those tasks is more time consuming than copying a worksheet, but definitely worth the effort.  The students see math come to life and sometimes it is that one moment that can move a student to truly grasp a concept that is presented.
