I don't know about you, but I am getting frustrated reminding my students over and over to restate when responding to questions. I think I've said it so much that I'm starting to sound like the teacher from that cartoon with the bald kid with the yellow and black striped shirt! I made this collection of posters to provide a visual reminder. We need to continue to practice this. I may even have my students put a copy in their interactive notebooks. Ey, yi, yi! I hope you find this useful as well!
Something else you might need!
