Following on the previous two posts, here is the Partner or Folding Pages podcast. With the partner pages, students rediscover, reinforce, and extend the work they did on the graphic pages. They connect manipulation with computation and continue building memory by taking more spins around the city.

Four additional features of the partner pages that support students who are not doing well in math are:
1. They involve cooperative learning with individual accountability
2. Students receive immediate and ongoing feedback
3. They engage teacher, peers, and students in student self-correction
4. They use no-stress timing focused on improving rather than merely measuring performance (See the earlier postings on fluency for a discussion of this.)

Again, because of the lesson design, we can observe and assess how students are doing each step of the way – and make the adjustments our observations indicate.
