NUMBER TALKS I Grades k-1 I WORKSHEETS 1-20
⭐⭐WHY Number Talks?⭐⭐
Encourage students to discuss their answers with their peers.
How did they reach the answer?
What were they thinking in their head?
What facts did they already know that helped them?
What did they see?
Number talks will get your students engaged in meaningful mathematical conversations that will increase their ability to reason mathematically as well as develop their computational fluency skills and their ability to think flexibly about numbers.
When students engage in this short daily activity, they communicate with their peers in a safe environment where it's okay to not be right all the time. It's okay to learn from each other. They learn to discuss various strategies and the effectiveness of those strategies. They begin to take risks.
