40 WEEKS OF KINDERGARTEN PAPERLESS NUMBER TALKS *GROWING BUNDLE*
Number Talks have never been easier with this product! This growing bundle includes a year's worth of Number Talk slides (PowerPoint). These Number Talk slides were designed to engage your learners in meaningful math conversations focused on mental math and computational strategies throughout the year. They make the perfect math warm-up! All you have to do is upload the Number Talk digital slides- paperless and no prep!
The structure of the Number Talk slides is predictable and student friendly! Spend more time talking about math instead of giving directions/expectations.
Each day of the week has a specific Number Talk activity:
Make it Monday: Students will mentally figure out how many more they would need to make the given number.
True or False Tuesday: Students will determine whether the problems/statements are true or false.
Quick Images Wednesday: Great subitizing practice! Briefly (5-10 seconds) flash each slide. Students will share what number was shown, as well as, explain their thinking in determining the number.
Five/Ten Frame Thursday: Great subitizing practice! Briefly (5-10 seconds) flash each slide. Students will share what number was shown, as well as, explain their thinking in determining the number.
Number Fun Friday: Students will mentally solve problems and share their thinking.
