## Reflection: Adjustments to Practice End of Grade Review - The Number System - Section 2: Explore

I found all of the problems to be important, and I did not want to take any out, so I actually completed this activity over the course of two days.  Just for fun, when the kids came in the second day I had the markers inside the socks and asked them to just grab a sock for their table - the color of their marker would be their new team color for the remainder of the game (I save a version of the smart file for each class so that the scores were in tact).  I love to add excitement and fun to the lessons - so this was a way to really get the kids going.  In one class the group that got the "bad marker" (lowest points) actually pulled through and made it the winner!
