Reflection: Joy Rounding Whole Numbers - Section 3: Group Activity


It is very important to give the students extra practice on the skill.  I find the best way to do this is with technology.  The students love going to the computer.  Why not let them practice on math using a tool that they enjoy?  When the students finish their work early, they can go to the computer to practice math.  This keeps the students focused on their lesson because they want to finish so that they can go to the computer.

With that being said, I have to be careful and monitor the students going to the computer.  There may be a few students who rush through their work in order to go to the computer.  To prevent this, I randomly select students to show me their finished work if they go to the computer.  The students are aware of this so that make sure that they have completed it correctly.
