Reflection: Checks for Understanding Measure It To Add It! - Section 2: Let's Practice


Because students have different needs, I drew shapes for some students to measure.  As I reviewed Student SampleI noticed that most of them forgot to measure the smaller sides of the given shapes.  To solve this problem I suggest to only use shapes that have equal sides. Second graders tend to not notice the smaller sides on number two, there-fore, their addition problem was incorrect.
