Reflection: Intervention and Extension Double Trouble - Section 3: Practice the Concept


During this lesson, students seemed to struggle with thinking about patterns of doubles in the real world.  It was my hope that they would think of objects around them that always came in groups like that.  However, some of the children could not see those patterns and instead incorrectly came up with things like groups of fish or baseballs.  As the students worked, I remembered that I had some magazines that I had used in a previous project.  I gave magazines to those students who seemed to be struggling and challenged them to search for patterns in the magazines.  It was somewhat time consuming, but I believe it is important for students to recognize the doubles around them. Once they found a few things, they no longer needed the magazines to come up with ideas.
