## Reflection: Student Feedback Ways to Make 5- A Lesson on Decomposing - Section 2: Presentation of Lesson

This lesson went very well.  The students were actually getting frustrated with waiting to do the paper together.  They let me know that they are ready to work on these types of problems on heir own.  Since this is such a repetitive group of lessons, I have decided to let them do the whole paper on their own starting tomorrow.  I probably could have done this a day or so earlier since the students did seem very capable at that point.  There are only a few students that are still struggling, so this will give me a chance to really focus on those students.
