## Reflection: Checks for Understanding Line Up! - Ordering Numbers 0-10 - Section 4: Independent Practice and Informal Assessment

As the students completed their independent practice, it became evident that the students needed some additional practice.  Since the majority of my students can rote count from 0 to 10, I assumed that this lesson would be a breeze for them.  I was quite surprised that many of the students had some difficulty with it.  Saying the numbers is quite different from ordering the numerals that represent those numbers.  The students were confusing 6 and 9.  They were also working from right to left instead of left to right.  I quickly planned a second lesson on number ordering.  We often have this master plan, but it is important that we adjust the plan based on the student's learning.  That's why it is so important to build informal assessments into every lesson.  By using this informal assessment, I was able to monitor and adjust my instruction to meet the needs of my students.
