Reflection: Flexibility Fast Food Freddie - Surveys and Bar Graphs - Section 4: Independent Practice and Informal Assessment


The students thoroughly enjoyed this lesson.  They had so much fun asking their classmates the survey questions.  One student said, "This doesn't even seem like work.  It is too much fun!"  I love how this lesson integrated a variety of math concepts into real-world learning.  The students had the opportunity to really focus on several of the Common Core Standards.  They had the opportunity to practice counting, one-to one correspondence and comparing groups. The students started to make their own surveys after we were done with the lesson.  I created blank templates that the students could write two options in so they could conduct their own survey during choice time.  This quickly became one of the more popular centers in our classroom.  It was so much fun to see them really building their CCSS skills during theses extensions.  The learning will continue far beyond this instruction.
