## Reflection: Checks for Understanding Less Than - Section 4: Closing/Summarizing

During the close out portion of the lesson, this is a good time to walk around and listen to the conversations the students are having about their numbers.  Encourage them to explain their reasoning to their partner, and ask them questions such as, "Why is that number less than the other number".  Or have them read the numbers in sentence form, using "less than" or "greater than" in correct context.
