Wow! Sweet Decimals! Pick up some synergistic number sense routines with these brain builders. Guide students into number talk by opening discussion of what is seen in a simple number. Extracting math vocabulary from numbers and gaining number sense is the goal of these mental warm up number activities. Here they are ready number prompts to display one number everyday on your smart boards, document cameras, overhead projectors, or just pinning to a wall for inviting inquiry. In 5 minutes a day you can get students helping each other see deeper number sense, that will grow understanding and problem solving skills with schema rich discussion. Get going with synergistic number talk today. Watch class discussions grow richer daily as students learn to see number value, place, bonds, expanded form, decomposing, estimates, rounded potential, trades, 10 more, 10 less, 100 more, 100 less.
Break out of the worksheet madness with number sense and TALK out what can be seen in a number. My other number sense lessons
include addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and more.
I love to model what I see in a number and realize numbers represent life: I share out 365, hey that is a year! 730 is two Earth years. What will your students discover. Please pin my lessons and get the word out to peers, number sense solves math problems!
