## Reflection: Intervention and Extension Measuring & Comparing the Lengths of Objects - Section 3: Student Practice

To provide an intervention for this student, Marking Eighths, I marked every eighth between one and two. This was very helpful, but now looking back on it, I wish I had one whole ruler with eighths marked for him to use at first. Then, he could have applied his understanding to an unmarked ruler.
