Reflection: Student Feedback The Neighbors of Doubles - Section 3: Practice the Concept


While students are playing the Memory Game I found that it was necessary for some students to play in partnerships, that I created, at a small table where I could monitor their learning.  It was not something that I determined before the games began, but after I was circulating around the classroom, I found that some of my students were having a difficult time with simply the doubles fact.  With the small group, before any of them began playing the game, I had the students work together to place all of the cards face up on the table and simply try to match the two cards, double with near double.  This helped me determine which students understood the concept and which might need more assistance to see the relationship between them.  When they then played the game with me monitoring, I encouraged discussion.  For instance, if a student flipped over a doubles fact I would ask "What do you think could be a near double that we could use that fact to help us solve?"  Most often with a few prompts the students were able to correctly identify either the double or near double that would match.
