## Reflection: Parent Communication Elapsed Time Flip Books - Section 3: Group Practice

As I circulated through the room to check their progress on the elapsed time for the train, some of the students were struggling. I discovered they were relying on the knowledge of others and not establishing friendly numbers as benchmark numbers, so that they could go on to count by fives.

Moving from 32 to 35 seemed confusing for students, and they also struggled with counting by fives to get to the hour mark without the visual aid of an analog clock.   I am unsure of their background with using an analog clock. This is something that I will emphasize with parents during our upcoming parent/teacher conferences.
