This Fluency Activity is a part of the Lesson 19, Unit 3, Grade K. Although the task is simple, this activity conditions students to stop working, even when they have not finished, and develops the self-regulation necessary for participating in math Sprints. Teaching the Sprint routine in stages may be time-consuming, but the investment is worthwhile. Conduct as described in Lesson 16, but this time, increase the level of difficulty by having students write the numbers counting down from 10 to 0.
