Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Go Fishing for a Ten - Section 2: Practice the Concept


I taught the students how to play this game after we had already discussed the Friends of Ten strategy in the Making a Ten lesson from the previous day.  I found that this was very helpful to the students, as they were already prepared with the prior knowledge and simply needed to apply it. 

However, I did find that the students were so accustomed to playing “Go Fish” or “Go Fish for Doubles” that I had to spend a great deal of time reminding the students that they were not looking for a match to their card, but for a card that would help them make a ten.  When you teach this lesson, it is my suggestion that you have a few students model the game after you have already modeled it in order to solidify understanding.
