Number conversations can be built into your daily schedule as short, daily exercises aimed at building number sense. Number sense is the ability to understand numbers and quantities, to use numbers flexibly, and to perform calculations mentally. According to research, students in the United States lack number sense. Traditionally, students have relied on rote algorithms to complete math problems, without really understanding what they are doing. Students who have strong number sense can solve problems in more than one way and can check that their answers make sense.

NOTE: This growing bundle will include over 300 talking math prompts that foster mental math abilities and help develop number sense by SPRING 2021. These 12 packs are listed at $49.00. You're saving 15% ($42.00) by purchasing this bundle!

This is a digital file. May I print it?

While intended to be a digital resource, it can also be printed. To do so, go to File à Print à Lay Out à Pages Per Sheet à 2 or 4 à Print.  2 to a page prints with awkward margins but are easier to read and write directly on. 4 to a page prints in perfect task-card form (the size of post cards).

How Do I Use These for a Whole-Class Number Talk?

Using Google Slides you are able to display these prompts. If you download the Page Marker Google Chrome extension, you can write directly on the slides (no log-in required) in different colors. Using an Interactive Whiteboard, you can use the markers or your finger to write on top of these images/slides. If using a touch-screen Chromebook or iPad, you can use a stylus to record students’ thinking. Should you want to rock a low-technology option, display the prompt on a screen and record student thinking on anchor chart paper, a white board, or an easel.

Can I share this with students?

Yes! On a password-protected site or platform, you are welcome to share this digital file with students and families. That might look like a Google Classroom, a password-protected website, a password-protected Flip Grid, See Saw, etc. Due to copyright, the digital file may not be placed on a class website that is accessible to the general public. Have questions? Ask a Q&A on Teachers Pay Teachers, and I’m happy to answer!

With what programs is this compatible?

This digital file is able to work with GoogleTM Slides, Google Drive, SeeSaw. Microsoft OneDriveTM, or Pic Collage. Note - In SeeSaw, the interactive pieces do not work. Then students may submit their thinking digitally. For instructions on how to use this resource with Microsoft OneDriveTM and SeeSaw visit bit.ly/digitalinstructions

Can I share just one or a few prompts at a time?

After you make a copy of this digital file and add it to your Google Drive, you are free to manipulate the slides. You can add/delete/or move around the pages to meet the needs of your students. Only want to share one prompt? Perfect. Delete the other slides and share the file via Google Classroom for your students. Then, when you want the rest of the tasks, you can come back to this link and reopen the original file.
