## Reflection: Frank Sets a Table: Exploring the Number 14 - Section 4: Independent Practice and Informal Assessment

There are times that I stop and wonder, is this too basic?   Too much repetition?  Am I moving too slowly?  Do the students really need to cover just one number at a time?  A saying that I often hear in the early childhood world is "Go slow to go fast."  The majority of the students are doing well in learning the numbers, but there are still several who are a little shaky.  The beauty of covering each number 0-20 in a separate lesson is that the students get the opportunity to review the previous numbers through the lessons.

It is a temptation to "bundle" the lessons and try to cover more numbers in a day.  It is so critical that the students develop a conceptual understanding that the time spent covering the numbers individually will come back when the students master concepts such as ordering and comparing numbers with ease.
