Number chats to reinforce number patterns for kindergarten
How to Use
As a lesson warm-up, or daily math review, simply project the number chats on the board for a full class discussion or print the half sheet number chats booklets for your students to pull out daily and record their mathematical thinking through your discussions.
What does it cover?
These number chats cover patterns. Students will be exposed to prompts meant to cause discussion on the topics repeating, AAB, ABC, ABAB type patterns, and skip counting.
A Number Chat
is a short, ongoing daily routine that provides students with meaningful ongoing practice with math concepts. A number chat is a powerful tool for helping students develop strategies for mathematical understanding.
Why Number Chats?
What young children know and understand can never be fully determined through paper and pencil tasks. Teachers can get much more complete and useful information if they watch and interact with the children while they are doing mathematical tasks. Number Chats are one such way to interact with the children. How the children respond reveals their level of understanding.
This packet is comprised of 20 different black and white number chats to supplement your teaching.
This packet is ideal for kindergarten.
