Since we started the “match-match” (they chose this title) during our counting circle students have been picking to do this instead of counting circle when they have the option. Today’s “match-match” number was quite a winner. It brought about great discussions. One of my students called me over and asked “I can say the number n right? It is just a variable that stands for a number so I can say it right?” My response: “Absolutely!” I made the leader of the circle stop at the student who asked this question and thus a great discussion happened. I am not sure I can thank Christopher Danielson (@trianglemancsd) enough for sharing the video on his post. HUGE discussions!!
