Number Talk

Today we tried our first “Number Talk” which is similar to a Math Talk (when we examine a picture and discuss the “math” we see). For our first number talk we started simple with this question:


The students were very focused on how the number 8 looked so I refocused them by asking them to think about the numbers itself and not how it looks. 


We will continue to do Number Talks in the coming months… Stay tuned!
