Help your students become thoughtful in their responses and use accountable talk with their peers!
This resource comes with 7 student friendly sentence starters they can use when sharing their thoughts with peers, whether they are working with a buddy or groups with book clubs, science experiments, or math games. These sentence starters print four to a page, and I print them on colorful card stock and give a card to each student as a way to scaffold their discussion techniques. For the first few weeks of school during read aloud or during group work we discuss how they can use thoughtful responses and accountable talk to "argue" their point in a respectful way -- and we do lots of practicing and modeling.
I hope these sentence starters will help your students develop their discussion techniques!
