Build number sense skills with this set of 20 task cards.
Use this set of task cards to easily implement number talks into your classroom.
Number talks are meant to be short, daily maths activities that allow students to have meaningful and highly engaging conversations about maths. Simply show students the front of the card, and ask the prompts on the back. These exchanges will lead to the development of more accurate, efficient and flexible strategies for students.
- standard measurement conversions
- finding perimeter/area in different units
- deciding which amount is larger/smaller
- solving multi-step word problems.
Print out the task cards front and back so that the prompts are displayed on the back of each card. The cards can also be put on a ring for added convenience.
