Reflection: Modeling What Makes Ten - Ten Frames - Section 3: Direct Instruction


Modeling any activity step by step is the key to your students being able to accomplish the task. Modeling solo then having them assist you in modeling followed by modeling again, helps the kids really latch on to what it is you're trying to get them to do. Make sure that while you modeling, you keep the focus on the math skill while you are modeling. You don't want the kids to get so focused on the steps in the activity and lose sight of the real goal.
