After the success of my Action Research project from graduate school, I decided to create a resource pack for implementing Math Talk into the classroom!
Math Talk puts students at the center of their learning experience. By implementing student-led conversations into math, students are able to improve their critical thinking and mathematical understandings. They are transformed into fluent mathematicians who can reason, evaluate, and explain their thinking processes.
This pack includes everything you need to start Math Talk in your third grade classroom today!
*20 pages of student practice sheets (all are at least 2 step word problems; covering different standards)
*20 task cards with recording sheet(same problems as on sheets--just another way to practice)
*Math Talk Expectations Full Size Posters (Color and Black and White)
*Math Talk Steps Posters (Color and Black and White)
*Mini Posters to Glue in Student Notebooks
*Rubric for Grading Students on Math Talk Discussions/Explanations
*Teacher Observation/Recording Sheet
