## Reflection: Lesson Planning Baker Bill-What Comes Next? (11-20) - Section 4: Independent Practice & Informal Assessment

Generally, planning a lesson that has a similar structure in kindergarten is a good thing.  I did have this backfire a bit on a me during this lesson.  I had two students who started doing the independent practice incorrectly.  They remembered drawing numbers from a bag from our lessons on comparing numbers.  They decided instead of writing what comes next, they would draw two numbers and compare them, circling the one that is greater.

Thankfully, I caught this mistake before the students got too far into the lesson.  I was able to quickly get them on the correct track.  I know in the future, I will make sure to tell the students, "This is NOT like our lesson on comparing numbers.  You will only draw one card, not two.  If you have any questions, make sure t let me know before you start."  Even though it is half-way through the school year, I can still assume too much.
