Number Talks - Hand Signal Poster Pack

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 5 pages | Grades: PK - 5

A pack of 5 posters to teach students the basic hand signals used in number talks.

These educational posters include the following number talks hand signals:

  • I am thinking.
  • I have one solution!
  • I have more than one solution!
  • I agree.
  • I have a question.

Use these 5 number talk posters to encourage your students to use hand signals to show their thinking process during a number talk session. This strategy also prevents students from raising their hands or blurting out when they have found a solution, which can be intimidating and anxiety-inducing for those around them.
