I have used notice and wonder in my classroom in my ELA and Science and Social Studies lessons usually with pictures and vocabulary. I have used it occasionally in math with geometry and patterns. I try to encourage and accept all comments when children share.
I really like the idea of withholding information I am interested in learning more about this. When teaching problem solving at the beginning of the year I will share a problem 1 sentence at a time and encourage students to draw the problem as I read each sentence. This has helped to get students to think about what the problem is asking. Sometimes after sharing each part of the problem and encouraging them to draw I will ask them what they think the question might be or what we might be solving for based on their picture.
