Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Addition With Dice Dot Patterns - Section 3: Playing the Game


At this point in the year (November 11), I want my students moving to the counting on strategy and away from the counting all approach.  This activity gives me a chance to see how the students are developing with this goal.  Understand that some students are also using know facts and don't need to go back to the counting on strategy and others are still relying on the counting all approach.  As I am circulating around the class (during this activity), I will take time to help students (who are still at the emergent level) model and practice the counting on strategy.
