Math - Number Talks
Check out my Rekenrek, Subitizing/Dots and 5/10/Teen Frames Boards for more number talks ideas.
These 24 differentiated Math Talk Cars contain questions and sentence starters to help your students practice communicating their ideas about problem solving. This is a great tool to encourage students to use in a mini lesson, partner time, or during math stations.

Kid's Math Talk: Kid's Math Talk Tools
The students in fourth grade use this chart to help them have a "Math Talk." The students are reminded to repeat what has been shared during the discussion. Then they state their opinion and explain why they are thinking that way. Other members of the class are encouraged to add on to the conversation. Finally, the students are encouraged to wait. The wait is a time for them to stop and THINK.

You might think your students won't have the strategies that the kids in the video use. Let me tell you, they will surprise you! I have never seen students more engaged and excited about math than I have when I'm doing number talks.
