First graders make sense of their math world and numbers by talking about it! This packet gives your kids ways to talk purposefully about fact families or related facts. Get your students comfortable with sharing strategies, writing notation to match their thinking, and agreeing and disagreeing in math in a friendly way!
Save 20% by getting the BUNDLE of Math Talks for 8 areas in math!
Visit my blog for ideas
on how I used this in my classroom.
Included in this packet
are slides with purposefully planned equations to get K-2 kids talking about fact families and relating addition and subtraction to solve. There are 2 or 3 equations for each "talk" and 20 total talks (that's 56 addition equations to talk about altogether!). There are 4 planned talks for each of the following categories:
-Relating addition and subtraction
-Change Unknowns (these math talks are slightly different in that students will be solving for box instead of the answer)
-Start Unknowns (solving for box)
This product is available as an interactive powerpoint or pdf file. Plus, a main menu for easy navigation on each page! (Note: navigation links are only available in the PowerPoint file.)
Get each math talk separately
