Reflection: Students with Disabilities Comparing Numbers to 10 Review - Section 2: Presentation of Lesson


I have several students who were not ready to play this game.  They are still struggling with identifying numbers and counting up to 10.  For these students I used different number cards.  The cards I used for them only go up to 5 and have dots on them along with a numeral.  I originally put these students together, but they were struggling to play the game since both of them had trouble recognizing the numbers, counting and comparing.  I ended up switching partners for these students after a few minutes.  I decided to partner them each with an average level student who could help keep the game going but wouldn't get frustrated with playing at a slower pace. 

I chose students who I knew would be supportive and helpful as these students learned to play the game.  This made game play go a lot smoother.  The only problem with this "solution" was that it generates a new problem. The students I pulled to partner up with my struggling students were now only playing the game with 0 to 5.  I decided to do one more switch before we stopped playing so that all of the students who were ready got some time to play the game with the 0 to 10 cards.
