Number Talks BUNDLE: First Grade Standard Focused (Digital and Printable)

Primary Bliss Teaching

$25.00 $29.00

Finding number talks that support the math strategy you are teaching has never been easier! There are five separate files that each target a specific computational strategy or skill (counting on, making ten, doubles, near doubles, and understanding the meaning of the equal sign).

This bundle of Number Talks is designed to build fluency with addition and subtraction within 20. They promote higher level mathematical thinking by providing students with the opportunity to solve problems using multiple strategies and, for some problems, find more than one possible answer.

With this product you will get 328 number talks and two poster sets.
* 60 number talks targeting Counting On to add sums within 20
* 43 number talks targeting Combinations of Ten and Making Ten to add sums within 20
• 50 number talks targeting Doubles within 20
• 55 number talks targeting Near Doubles within 20
• 120 number talks targeting the Meaning of the Equal Sign
* Silent Signal Posters
* Number Talk Response Posters

Many different activity types are included to increase student interest and engagement. To see the activity types just click into the preview, scroll down to the fourth page, and click on the specific strategy you are interested in.

All you need to do is copy the materials (or display them on your interactive whiteboard) and get your students engaged in amazing mathematical student-to-student interaction! Our students have LOVED this daily routine, and math has become a favorite part of their day.


These Number Talks will get your students engaged in mathematical conversations that will help them build their computational fluency skills within sums to 20. The variety of activities keeps students' engagement high. And, these number talks make it so EASY to find a number talk that matches your daily lesson focus.


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 Making a Ten to increase computational fluency). As a result, this product and other target specific number talk products were created.

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 Primary Bliss Teaching
