Clip to ScrapBook #1

I am new to teaching math in the classroom. I like number talks, and I would really like to use them in the classroom. What are your feeling about them? What are some good ideas that I could use?

It's probably one of my favorite parts of the day. Do you have the book and DVD? Watch the classroom clips to see them in action at different grade levels. I think you might be able to find some on youtube, too, but the quality of those varies.

Why I love Number Talks:
builds mental math, computation strategies and overall number sense
all kids are involved and use strategies that make sense to them
kids share their thinking and learn from each other
no preparation or materials needed

Dive in and you'll be hooked quickly.
