⭐What is a Number Talk?
A Number Talk is a daily, structured routine designed to develop and strengthen students’ number sense and mathematical thinking. This approach fosters a classroom environment where students can openly discuss and share their strategies for solving mathematical problems. For Kindergarten teachers, the focus of Number Talks varies throughout the week, with each day concentrating on a specific mathematical tool and associated manipulatives.

⭐How to Use These Number Talks:
I use these slides using an interactive board at school. I sit on the left side of the computer and advance the slides with ease. We use the pen for the board to write on the pen provided.
Now, not everyone has access to this technology. You can still project these files on smart boards. If you don’t have interactive writing options, I suggest trying to use a free website called Classroom Screen to add digital elements.
Another option would be to print these out and use them as large flashcards. I would recommend using a hole punch and binder ring to keep them in order and save time and effort in the classroom. You could laminate them as well to write on them.
Additionally, you could print these pages out and place them in page protectors in a binder, you could turn page by page to guide learning. This is a great option for small groups.
