This Application Problem is a part of the Lesson 8, Unit 3, Grade 2. Pretend Partner A is the parent, and Partner B is the child. Partner B, explain to your parent in your own words what Valeria just shared with the class. This type of exchange gives students the opportunity to process key information. The language and thinking of the child who makes the original statement provides support for others. The process of reformulating the idea helps solidify understanding, and verbalizing it helps students clarify and internalize it.
