Improve your partner time with Let's Talk Cards. This BUNDLE pack includes over 160 conversation starters for partnerships. There are talking prompts for Math, Science, Reading, and Writing.

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.
