Math Thinking Stems | Editable | Sentence Stems | Say Something | Critical Thinking Stems | Critical Thinking | Dialogue and Discussions | Thinking | Math | Thinking Stems | Whole Class | Small Groups | 2nd - 8th Grades | Super Heroes Theme

Do you have trouble getting your students to think about what they are learning in math? Do you have struggle in getting your students to discuss and dialogue about what they are struggling to understand or explain their reasoning?

"Say Something" is a great way to get students thinking about what they are learning and practicing in math.

Sentence stems are provided for the students, which takes the pressure of having to come up with something all on their own.

Once I modeled it several times and had my students practice it, they became pros at using say something to think critically.

I had say something posters hanging up in my classroom, and I also printed a say something sheet for every student to paste in their math notebook. After every problem, we would stop and "say something". My students got so used to thinking critically when they solved a math problem that they just thought of it as part of the problem solving process. I found it to be an invaluable tool in my classroom.

Included in this set:
~ Half sheet thinking stems, one per card
~ Quarter sheet thinking stems, one per card
~ Half sheet thinking stems, with all the thinking stems listed (great for students to glue in their interactive notebooks)
~ How to use the thinking stems
~ Examples
~ Editable slides where you can add your own sentence stems

I used them in almost every math class and lesson to help my students think critically. The more we used it, the more it became second nature for my students.

I used them throughout my classroom:
~ Whole class
~ Small groups
~ Partner work
~ Individual work.
There are so many possibilities!
