Why NUMBER TALK
Jo Boaler talks about reasons for using Number Talk. Number Talks can be used at home by parents, too. It can be done in so many different ways for different reasons depending on what teachers need to achieve at the end.
At our schoool we did talk about this for a while and some classes have been doing it for a while. In my class, I spend 10 minutes everyday as part of my warm up doing Number Talk. Here are some of what my learners are doing as part of it.
