Number Talks are great for building number sense, mental math skills and math language skills in children. Included here are 24 dot pattern cards and 24 photo cards that ask How Many?, leaving it up to the children to figure out how many different ways they can see "How Many?" in the photos. Using real photos encourages children to look for math in their every day surroundings. Children will have fun stretching and strengthening their "math brains" during these number talks.

Dot Pattern cards:
Numbers 1-5: 8 cards
Numbers 6-10: 8 cards
Numbers 10-20: 8 cards
How Many? Photo Cards: 24 cards
