Reflection: Joy A Recipe for Doubles Practice - Section 3: Independent Practice


I love that I created a lesson that the kids not only enjoyed completing, but they were practicing a skill in the process. My students have worked hard to learn their addition doubles facts. I taught them their facts by using picture mnemonics to help them memorize the facts.  The same picture poster stayed up and the kids used it as a center during their free time. It became a favorite for most of my class. All of that hard work allowed me to design this lesson to be fun. 

  Joy: Yum!
