## Reflection: High Expectations Measuring Butterflies and Caterpillars - Section 3: Independent Work

It is not often I will ask students to color a math assignment. Generally, coloring is not a concern for me, as I am focused on if the students are understanding the taught skill. However, it is nearing the end of our school year, and students are starting to get a little lazier in their quality of work. So when I asked them to also color the pictures, it served as quick reminder that I expect the work and coloring to be neat.
