These number chats are short mini-lessons that go alongside your daily math curriculum. If you are using Engage New York or a similar math program, these 5-15 minute number sequences will fit right in. Students will mentally solve math sentences by thinking, justifying, questioning and discussing mathematical situations with flexibility. Although this product is specifically designed with first graders in mind, it can also be used to support struggling 2nd or 3rd graders.
Each number sequence is designed to build fluency. Number sets may overlap and the differences in problems may seem subtle but the differences are in the essence of the strategy.
