These eleven posters will help kickstart math talks in your classroom. Every week your students can focus on a new skill:
Mental Math, Wait Time, Eye Contact, Making Mistakes, Asking Questions, Agreeing and Disagree, Restating, Justifying, and Being the Teacher. Each skill is described with pictures, examples and or sentence starters. There is also a poster that walks your students through the math talk steps: 1. Mental Math, 2. Partner Talk, 3. Do the Problem on Paper, 4. Whole Class Discussion. Post a problem of the day and have your students follow the math talk steps, use one poster a week to build each math talk skill. Your students will be discussing math like little adults in no time!
Look for my "Problem of the Day Pack" based on each common core math standard coming soon!
