This is something I use to remind students that being a good math student is not only about getting the correct answer. You can use this as a wall poster or as a part of student math notebooks.
What does doing well in math mean?
- I can show it.
- I can draw it.
- I can explain it in words.
- I can explain it to another person.
- I can do it in a different way.
These principles are true at all grade levels. The example on this poster relates most to 1st-3rd graders.
