Early Subtraction Number Talk Teaching Strategies

There are 9 number talk slides, that can be displayed or printed for use by the students. After a few number talk sessions, the students should be encouraged to make their own slides.


About Early Subtraction Number Talk Teaching Strategies:

When we give students pages of repetitive drill-and-kill practice sheets we are doing them a disservice. Students come to see such exercises as tests to be carried out as quickly as possible and as answer recall only. Yes, students need practice, but that practice needs to be designed to develop deep understanding, not just procedural knowledge and recall Pattern and Structure Number Talk.

These number sequences are designed to foster the expectation that students should always self-talk: “Do I need to work every one of these or are some related?” “Do I have a visual image that will help me with this one?” “What patterns can I see?”

Thinking in this way develops fluent, efficient and flexible thinking about subtraction.
