Abstract

The purpose of this research was to determine the impact that daily Math Talks have of the number sense development of Kindergartners. The study consisted of 22 Kindergarten students in a midwestern school. The data was collected over the course of four months using pre- and post-intervention self-assessments, observational teacher notes, NWEA standardized test scores, and Seesaw video recordings. Results show a positive correlation between daily Math Talks and increased number sense skills. The data shows positive effects on foundational number sense skills and mathematical ability and can be actively integrated into classrooms to help support student achievement and growth. It is my recommendation that daily Math Talks are implemented over the course of the school year as a part of daily classroom routines.
