Now, I encourage my students to refer to the chart and try to notice a little more deeply. For example, if a student say she notices numbers, I ask her to give us details. Are the numbers whole numbers, decimals, fractions? It’s been a big help, and it’s definitely helped increase their use of academic vocabulary. I finally turned my hand-written anchor chart into a digital version with examples of each.
