Let's Talk about Math! Let's talk COMMON CORE! Math Box Talks are designed to do that and more! This unit compliments the kindergarten unit in my TPT store. Math Box Talks ~ First Grade Edition includes nearly 400 Math discussion cards as well as directions and ideas for putting together a Math Board to get your kids involved in Box Talks conversations! Each card is written to a specific Common Sore standard. The cards present problems and use wording to enhance upper level thinking and generate discussion! and Math Box Talks are an EASY grab-and-go activity to put together as well as implement!
Make meeting at your Box Talks Board a part of your daily routine. Short, targeted consistent daily Math practice pays off in dividends for our kiddos! These cards provide the practice needed to do just that! This board can be used in a multitude of ways! It can be used to reinforce current learning, as a challenge for future learning and/or to pretest as a quick assess to see where learners are with their current base of knowledge before teaching a new concept.
Box Talks are a powerful way to help your First Grade kiddos internalize their Math learning as they share their thinking and listen to the thinking of others! It helps build your classroom community as the kids work together to solve math problems! It is not entirely about the answer...it's the THINKING too!
Make the Box Talks Board your own! Tailor it to meet the needs of your students!
These cards will have you saying a new "I Can" statement... your new mantra will be, "I Can Common Core!" Have fun
Thank you! Sheila
