Reflection: Modeling Introduction to 2D shapes - Section 3: Guided Practice


I love introducing math games to my class especially during guided practice and math centers.  Students get the most out of math games if they are directly modeled.  In this case, I model the game by playing it with another student.  By showing students what an "ideal" response is or what it means to defend their work, students are more likely to push themselves and their partners to defend their answers and explain their thinking using mathematical thinking.
