Reflection: Intervention and Extension Word Problems RTI: It's a Competition! - Section 4: Game On! Whole class competition.


As I worked on intervention with my students at my table, I had noticed students talking to each other and comparing solutions to problems. The quiet sort of engagement that I was witnessing pleased me because the students at my table were really needing my full attention. When we joined together to play a whole class game at solving word problems, things got rowdy and full of energy. The competition was generating a lot of energy. This movie clip expresses my thoughts and plans on how I am going to be sure the "why" of solving the problems is solid. I think we are getting there!
