## Reflection: Modeling Does this make sense? - Section 3: Guiding Practice

In this portion of the lesson I noticed several of my students had difficulty representing their numbers using base-ten materials.  Base-tens is a wonderful way for students to explore and understand large numbers. But some students needed a little support in choosing the correct material to build their numbers. To correct this misconception, I review the value of each base ten material. After that, I built a couple of numbers and explained the value of each aloud. I did this a couple of times, so that students can see it done correctly!  Then the students worked on building numbers with base-tens, until they could accurately explain how and why they build.
