Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge POPCORN - Section 4: Lesson Wrap-Up


Today's lesson was about adjustment.  Yesterday, I was able to get through every student with the assessment of counting 20 objects (I only have 15 students).  So I adjusted a bit today.  Yesterday's assessment demonstrated to me that each child was secure in rote counting up to 20.  So I adjusted the Popcorn game to go from 18-32.  This gave me a chance to hear students counting with two decade crossovers (20 and 30).  

During Center Time, I changed what I was doing one on one with the kids.  Since my count to 20 assessment was finished, I started a piece of my district's Number and Operation Assessment.  Due to copyrights, I can not post this test.  

The students all had a chance to use the pattern blocks over the past three days and it made for a solid conversation about the block's characteristics (during the lesson wrap up).  I used the pattern block poster resource to create a chart with these characteristics.  This chart is filled with vocabulary related to the pattern blocks and will be displayed in my room.

Big Idea: Pop, pop, pop! Nobody want a kernel of corn left un-popped! Today the students will play a game called "Popcorn." The game will require that the students continually practice a selected rote sequence of counting.
