Number Talks in the Primary Classroom


Number Talks are an engaging way to give all students an opportunity to share, and build, on their strategies to mentally problem solve. This exposes students of all levels to the opportunity of learning from collaborative conversation. A Number Talk is a five to fifteen minute classroom conversation around purposefully crafted computation problems that are solved mentally to build number sense and mathematical reasoning. Number sense is something that cannot be taught, however, it is through exposing students to activities like Number Talks, that this vital key to their learning can develop.

In this session you will see what a Number Talk looks like and learn how to run one. You will walk away with resources you can use in your school instantly, as well as skills to create your own!
