#### This post has AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME journal starters for a math classroom. Students can journal once a week and you can ask them to explain the content to a new student in their journal, or why they think math is fun, etc. SUPER great way to get to know your students and have them creatively writing.

#### Love this post all about math journaling. So great for really digging into a problem and for assessment too! And there is a freebie too!

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.
