What do you notice?

Encourage children to be good question posers. Posing questions develops mathematical thinking and reasoning skills.

Fill a container with mini-eggs and ask “What do you notice?”

Which of the things that you notice are mathematical?

Follow this by asking “What do you wonder?”

How many ways can you finish the sentence “I wonder……………..”

How many questions can you ask about the pot of eggs? Sort your questions – those that are mathematical and those that are not.

Can you ask good mathematical questions that can be explored, investigated and answered by your friends?

Put the questions on your working wall, use them in your maths challenge area, and as investigations in enhanced provision.
