NUMBER TALKS HAVE NEVER BEEN EASIER!
This resource includes 40 weeks of PAPERLESS Number Talk lessons. The Number Talk lessons were carefully designed to engage your first grade learners in meaningful math conversations focused on mental math and computational strategies throughout the year. They make the perfect MATH WARM-UP! The best part is this resource doesn't require any printing, laminating, cutting, sorting, or stapling! You will receive 40 weeks of Number Talks that are completely digital and ready to be projected on your SmartBoard or any screen using PowerPoint. All you have to do is upload the slides and you're all set- PAPERLESS and ZERO PREP!
The Number Talk lessons included in this resource build up on one another and get progressively more challenging throughout the year. The daily structure and routine of these lessons is predictable and student friendly. Spend more time talking about math instead of giving directions/expectations over and over!
Each day of the week has a specific Number Talk activity:
Make it Monday: Students will mentally think of equations that make the number in the circle using the given numbers.
True or False Tuesday: Students will mentally solve the equations to determine whether they are true of false.
Work it Out Wednesday: Students will mentally solve the equations and share their thinking.
Time to Subitize Thursday: Briefly (5-10 seconds) flash each slide. Students will share what number was shown, as well as, explain their thinking in determining the number.
Fact Fun Friday: Students will mentally solve the equations and share their thinking.
Every week has 5 slides/problems for each day with the exception of Make it Monday.
*Editable/Blank slides are also included in case you would like to create your own problems.
