I teach the kids what each number means, then I can remind students to be at a certain number and can even call out... "What number are you working at... quick... show me on your fingers." Students can then reflect on their actions and correct them without me having to tell them! Self regulation is a wonderful thing in the classroom!
5 - Doing exactly what is expected of me.
