Reflection: Continuous Assessment Walking the Number Line - Section 1: Getting Started


Students easily counted forward. When asked to count backwards several students counted on instead. As we discussed the counting, each time after students had written the count, we talked about how counting backwards gives us smaller numbers. 

Children need to be able to count both forwards and backwards to meet the Common Core standards.
