***UPDATED-this now includes a PDF with larger cards (as shown in the preview)
These are small cards students can keep at their desk to refer to during math. We do a lot of cooperative learning in my classroom and these cards help when two students are working together. For my class, I:
-Print the Sentence Starters and Math Talk on colored cardstock
-I glue the back of "Sentence Starters" to the back of "Math Talk"
-Then I place 4-5 in each caddy. Each table has a caddy, so students can pull these out any time they need!
Eventually, my students can fluently use these examples (and their own) in conversations with students and myself..... without having to use the cards!
We always go over the front and back, in depth, when we first use them. While you are monitoring students, you can refer to the "Good Partners..." section if you notice a student is not behaving like a good partner.
I hope you find this product useful in your own class!
