Reflection: Gradual Release Summer Budget! - Section 3: Budget Total



I noticed that several of my students needed several attempts to solve/explain their problem solving steps.  Basically, I gave additional questions and group students according to their ability to give them the time they needed to explore.  I encourage them to discuss several strategies, including estimation and compatible numbers. For struggling students I encourage them to use the Anchor charts I posted earlier to help remind them of the necessary steps. Students may need a gradual release when learner newer concepts.
