Math routines are one of the most powerful pieces of math instruction. Number talks and math warm ups provide students with the chance to see math in many ways, explain their thinking, and grow their math confidence. These sentence stems were created to support students' academic language and give scaffolds for explaining their math ideas.
This resource includes a link to a blog post
that explains each of these math routines in detail, how to start them, what to expect, and ways to scaffold for your various learners. You will use these sentence stems for each of the math routines described. As we continue to learn about more math routines, they will be added to the blog post and sentence stems will be added to this resource!
to read about how these math routines fit in with the math rotations we currently use.
Included are 9 different sentence stem posters (18 total) for these types of math routines:
-Counting: Sequencing and Number Chart
-Joining and Addition
-Separating and Subtraction
-Equal Equations (True/False)
Math Warm Ups:
-Which One Doesn't Belong? Working on argumentation and multiple points of view
-Describe, Draw, Describe (DDD) Working on shapes, position words, measurement, and motion
These sentence stems come in color and black and white! You can also enlarge the prints to poster size at your local copy store for anchor chart sized posters!
I hope you give math routines a try in your classroom. Using these routines in conjunction with these sentence stems have taken my students to another level in their understanding of math.
