Using the book Number Talks by Sherry Parrish, I have organized the problems into an easy to display PowerPoint. The PowerPoint contains multiple number talk sessions divided into "Strings" (i.e. String 1, string 2, etc.). Furthermore, the strings are organized into three categories growing in difficulty. These strings of problems can be used in multiple ways. The PowerPoint could be displayed onto the Whiteboard where the teacher could write right onto the board or could be displayed onto a Smart Board where the digital pens can be used. It could also be used as a digital resource that a teacher uses to then right the problems onto chart paper.
This PowerPoint contains Number Talks using the second grade addition skill “Compensation”.
