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.
FREE Video ~ Improving Participation with Talk Moves shows a wonderful technique for improving class participation using hand signals and simple techniques. A few small changes will encourage students to repeat, add on, agree, and change their mind. Everyone participates, even when it's not their turn to talk. Love this!
