The students in fourth grade use this chart to help them have a "Math Talk." The students are reminded to repeat what has been shared during the discussion. Then they state their opinion and explain why they are thinking that way. Other members of the class are encouraged to add on to the conversation. Finally, the students are encouraged to wait. The wait is a time for them to stop and THINK.

#### Classroom Math, Help Students, Students Remember, Anchor Charts, Math Ideas, Students Involved, Math Talk

#### Here's a nice chart to help students understand ways to participate in math talk. As teachers need to use talk moves, i think this is an awesome way to get students involved in each others thinking. This is a great thing to use when students are in groups, so that they better understand each others ideas and strategies to solving a problem.
