This Number Talks resource contains 10 frame mats and dot cards (including 10 frame dot cards) for Numbers 1-10. The dot cards are perfect for Quick Images Number Talks, while you can use the 10 frame mats (single, double & triple 10 frame mats included) to provide extra, concrete support with subitizing and early addition and subtraction strategies for children who need it.
Number Talks are one of the best ways to develop number sense in your pupils. They transformed my mathematics teaching, once I realised how effective they were at building deep mathematical understanding in my classes.
This pack contains everything you need to get started with Number Talks in the early years. Once you have the resources made (and they are all provided here), Quick Image Number Talks are very easy, and your class will love them - mine always have. Your class will also begin to talk about and reason with numbers in ways that will astonish you.
In this pack, you'll find:
- 10 frames, double 10 frames and triple 10 frames (winter/spring themes). I used these with smaller groups of children who needed concrete experience with the mathematical strategies their peers were using during Number Talks
- A range of dot cards, showing amounts up to 10
- A range of 10 frames, showing amounts up to 10
Using these cards builds early number sense and knowledge of number bonds, in a fun way. In my early years classes, if I kept my dot cards on scrapbooking rings that were available to the children, they would often spend their 'free play time' doing Number Talks with their peers!
