Math Chats are AWESOME!!!
I'm super excited to be linking up with Mrs. McClain over at Buzzing with Mrs. McClain for my first "You Oughta Know" Blog Hop!
  I'm sharing all about Math Chats!  I have been using Math Chats in my classroom for a few years now and I have found that they really help my students with developing their number sense skills.  Some of the number sense skills incorporated within math chats are subitizing, counting, and addingI also love math chats because students are using math vocabulary and able to see writing modeled for them.  Here are some directions I came up with for using math chats in your classroom:
  Let me share a few pictures with you so you can see them in action! 
You can see from this winter math chat, we were working on teen numbers.  I put ten frames around the pictures, recorded the equations, and drew ten frames beside the numbers.  You can also see tons of math vocabulary!
I decided to change things up for this valentine math chat and let my students do the writing.  I had them work in partners and when they finished one idea, they could write another.  Love all of the math vocabulary they were able to independently use!
We had been doing a lot of addition when we did this St. Patrick's Day math chat so there are lots of equations on this one.  We also used the greater than/less than symbols that we had previously talked about during our calendar routines.

Are you excited to try math chats in your classroom?!?!
