FREE Mathematical Discourse Resource

Looking for a strategy to encourage mathematical discourse in your classroom? 

The "Who's Correct?" strategy allows students the opportunity to evaluate the mathematical thinking of others and either agree or disagree with the person’s response. What I love about this strategy is that students do not just solve the problem, they must select a correct, or incorrect, response and provide a justification for the thinking of another. See the example above.

Here's how to use this strategy:
1. Create two responses to a problem (consider using a frequently missed test item).
2. Ask students to respond to the “Who’s Correct?” question and give a justification in pictures, words, or numbers.
3. Have students debate who's response is correct (or incorrect) using appropriate models and mathematical vocabulary.

Click here or on the image above to grab a free copy of my "Who's Correct?” images. To use them, insert them into PowerPoint slides and then add your own text. You can read more about how to use the "Who's Correct?" strategy with your students here.

ELA; Grades 4-8

Before students write beautiful poetry, they need to be well-versed with the elements of poetry to write truly creatively. The abstract subject content characteristic of poetic devices can be made more meaningful to students with this pack of 120 QR Code Cards (color, blackline and answer code cards). Your students can delve into their own journey of inquiry learning as they use the QR Code Cards to familiarize themselves with key features of common poetic devices that they can use in their poems.

 Believe to Achieve

Hello there! I am an experienced elementary teacher from Texas. I love to travel, watch movies, do yoga and spend time with my family! I am the teacher author behind Believe to Achieve on Teachers Pay Teachers. My specialty is little to no prep resources, primarily math and science, with strong curriculum connections.

My favorite free product is my “FREEBIE Sample from: 3rd Grade Daily Math Morning Work or Homework”. I created this sample to show teachers a glimpse of the full resource. The full resource has 9 math problems per day that spiral through the 3rd grade math curriculum. You can snag this by clicking on the picture below!

My best-selling resource is called "Measurement: Cups, Pints, Quarts, Gallons." This is a fun set of task cards to use with math stations for a SCOOT game.

My favorite resource is my 3rd Grade Monthly Math Bundle (year-long)! I just love this resource because it is so great to use for daily math practice or to keep handy for a sub day! 

You can find all of these goodies below. Just click the pictures.


What do you like best about The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs Marketing Cooperative and/or Teacher Talk?

I just love the welcoming and collaborative spirit of the group! I love contributing to the Weekly 5 Under 5 feature, blogs and e-books! I love seeing what other teachers are sharing and creating, too!
