Tammy over at Forever in First has a really cute linky...
At first, I wasn't sure I really had things that I say on a regular basis.
After 21 years...I guess I do!
I say the first part and my students respond with the last word.
Sometimes I say this when a person needs a partner or a group.
Instead of saying this is hard...I ask my students to say that a task is challenging not hard.
When I ask a question, sometimes I will ask this after a student has answered.
I love the look on their face. Confusion, doubt...
Then I tell them to be confident in their answers.
Phrases when providing feedback to peers.
We don't say the "h" word (hate) we say we dislike something.
I talk to my students about being proactive by asking questions, asking for clarification or just let me know they don't understand something that I've said or a word that I have used.
The one that my husband completed after a year of marriage...
"I know...you're disappointed in my behavior." Uhhh, learned my lesson!
