Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Basic Facts to 20 - Section 3: Independent Practice


In teaching this lesson, I found that some of the struggling students tended to give up easy, due to the number of problems on the worksheet.  They became frustrated because others were finished before them.  Putting them in a small group, I worked with them and encouraged them to continue to use strategies that worked for them.  We talked about the different strategies, and shared our experiences.  In the end, they persevered and finished the task.
