Build number sense skills with this set of 24 task cards.
Use this set of task cards to easily implement number talks into your classroom.
Number talks are meant to be short, daily, math activities that allow students to have meaningful and highly engaging conversations about math. 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.
This card set is a great teaching resource for helping students with:
- representing numbers in a variety of ways
- composing and decomposing numbers
- using models to identify fractional parts
- identifying expressions that represent given numbers.
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.

Common Core State Standards alignment
Grade 2 > Standards for Mathematical Practice > Operations & Algebraic Thinking > Work with equal groups of objects to gain foundations for multiplication > CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.OA.C.4
Use addition to find the total number of objects arranged in rectangular arrays with up to 5 rows and up to 5 columns; write an equation to express the total as a sum of equal addends.
Grade 3 > Standards for Mathematical Practice > Operations & Algebraic Thinking > Represent and solve problems involving multiplication and division > CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.OA.A.1
Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5 × 7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a total number of objects can be expressed as 5 × 7.
Grade 4 > Standards for Mathematical Practice > Operations & Algebraic Thinking > Use the four operations with whole numbers to solve problems > CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.OA.A.1
Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
