A few years ago we were asked to implement number talks in our daily math instruction. After engaging our students in a few of these activities, we were hooked. One of our goals then became to create standard specific number talks. We needed to be able to grab number talks that addressed specific math standards we were working on in our math program (such as subtraction). As a result, this product and other target specific number talk products were created.
THIS RESOURCE IS HELPFUL FOR:
-Busy First Grade Teachers
-Special Education Teachers
-Whole Group Math Instruction
-Small Group Math Instruction
How long do number talks take?
It is best if Number Talks are done daily for between 5 and 15 minutes.
Can these number talks be displayed on an interactive whiteboard?
Yes! In fact, a digital version is included that allows you to write right on the slide using PowerPoint (directions, if needed, are included).
Do I have to print out number talk materials for each student each day?
NO! This is a whole group activity. Just display the number talk for everyone to see. We have included both a printable version and a DIGITAL version.
Wishing you joyful engagement and rigor in your primary classroom.
Happy Number Talking! Becky and Cindy at
