These posters stems are used in the math block when students are explaining, justifying, and critiquing other students' problem solving work. Students use them to help formulate conversations about math concepts while looking at other students' strategies.
These questioning stems are aligned with the Common Core SMPs (Standards of Mathematical Practices).
The first few weeks of school maybe only giving students five posters to choose from would be appropriate, but as the year progresses post new posters. There are 16 posters in all. The posters are 8” x 11”.
***They are also available in cards - See my TPT store for more info. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Accountable-Math-Talk-Questions-Conversation-Stems-Commom-Core-SMPs-280248
