Intentional Talk Sentence Starters

This year I’m hoping to talk less. I know my students will need supports to start contributing to our math discussions and I think having these sentence starters will help. I’m expecting that I’ll have to model their use and I think we might do some role playing so that students can get used to saying them without any extra pressure.

I reused some of my previous sentence starters that I never actually posted in my classroom and added in suggestions from Intentional Talk: How to Structure and Lead Mathematical Discussions. They’ll be hung above the whiteboard so that everyone can see them. I might make another set to hang on on side of the classroom as well.

Link to the google slides can be found here! These should print just fine if you print 1 slide per page.
