Reflection: Lesson Planning Spin It Addition! - Section 5: Exit Ticket


After playing this game year after year, I've learned that it takes a lot of structure. I also learned something each time I played it for the first couple of years. Through trial and error I learned that this game needs to be teacher led the first four to five times they play it. I recommend that the first four to five times playing it be on consecutive days to put it into the long-term memory of the students. I also learned that step by step play and organization is key. Having each student with a single color of cubes at each table keeps supplies and students organized. Instructing the kids step by step keeps them on target with the game and the desired outcome. Classroom management is the key to success for all. Without it, no one can have the opportunity to learn to their fullest potential.
