Number Talks

Number Talks

Thursday, Jan. 19th, 2:45pm

PLC Room

Angela Ergle, Northwest Learning Math Specialist will help you understand how to facilitate a number talk.
Number talks are a short, daily routine that provides children with ongoing number practice. Just like reading every day builds literacy fluency, number talks help to build math fluency. Number talks encourage children to think actively about numbers as well as encourage divergent thinking about number problems. If you are new to number talks and would like to see a model, there are many teacher videos on Youtube. Here is one example.
