Accountable talk is important from the upper grades to the lower. These posters are perfect for the little kiddos because they include pictures to help them understand and use the posters themselves. Many teachers use or guide accountable talk for the younger student, but these posters let the student take control of their learning. They help them think more in depth and find the right words to explain their thinking.
Included are 12 different strategies that students can use to explain their thinking and reasoning.
"I notice you...", "I agree because...", "Can you tell me more about..." and more.
Help your kiddos have deeper conversations on their own!
