Math Talk Monday

The students are starting to take on more responsibility for their own learning. Our Math Talk took a little longer this week because the students are recording their own thinking on the iPads. They are very excited to type the words themselves and to pick fancy backgrounds.

imageToday something wonderful happened during our math talk. So far this year the students have been happy to share their thinking. Today the children started to really listen to each other and responded with kindness. During our discussion some students kindly challenged other students. I was amazed to hear things like. ” I think they might mean”. Instead of ——- is wrong or that is not right. Being able to talk with peers and disagree in a constructive way is an essential skill in today’s world.
