Reflection: High Quality Task Counting up the Cost! - Section 3: How Much Change Do I Get?


Materials:  Teacher's Explanation

Students were so excited about creating  their own store! However, I noticed that several students argued over who turn was next. I had to stop the lesson at this point and create a time limit for each student to take time purchasing their items.  I set the timer for two minutes per student.   I quickly ran through the expectations. After that, the lesson ran smoother because the expectation and set time provided structure. I prompted students to return to their assigned seats, and circled the room to check for understanding. I noted that the lesson was meaningfully structured, and students were eagerly learning.
