Singapore Math and Math in Focus are mastery programs. Before moving on to the next skill, you need to confirm that your students own the information. They must prove that they truly and deeply understand the concept. How can you do this?
Question, question, question! Increase their metacognition!
We all have days when those questions just aren’t coming to our heads. In the long run, don’t we want our students to ask themselves these questions as well? Of course! So let’s post some anchor charts to prompt you and your students to ask those deep thinking questions.
36 Printable Anchor Charts include:
* 13 higher level thinking questions are displayed on individual, high color posters, created with fun shapes and fonts.
* Those same 13 questions are displayed on 5 high color, space saving, multi-question posters
* Finally the 13 individual posters AND the 5 multi-question posters are provided in black-line style. This allows you to print each poster with less expensive black ink on brightly colored paper.
This scaffolding tool is Common Core Applicable even if you're not using Singapore or Math in Focus.
