I haven’t tried number talks yet but kind of with Fawn Nguyen’s Visual Patterns. Have you checked those out? I do like being able to predict kids’ strategies, but I love when I have the Aha moment when they share a new method I didn’t even see.

I also love how students surprise me with their strategies. I did a number talk once in a 4th grade classroom – 45 x 16. The classroom had been working in Geometry with angles and circles…one boy said he knew the answer was 720 because since it takes 8-45 degree angles to make one 360 degree circle, it would be two of those for 720. I was floored! That never would have happened if the classroom teacher had only showed the algorithm for multiplication. Simply magical!!
