These number talks are perfect for getting your kindergarteners thinking math and participating in academic conversations. They are aligned to common core standards and are engaging, VERY easy to implement, and fun!

Pick a number 1-10. Practice dotting it, writing it, tally it, draw a picture adding to that number, color in the correct squares, and circle it on a number line. Great for kindergarten - 2nd grade.

I used a similar thumbs up/down/sideways for kids' math understanding. It worked with one group of kids, but not with another group. It really depends on your group.
