First grade--number talk Doodle Buddy

Previously students have made number talks in Chalk, today I asked them to use Doodle Buddy. We talked about different ways to get to a number (add, subtract, skip count, multiply, divide, coins, draw a picture) and I asked them to show me 4 different strategies to get to 50.

In addition, on a separate screen I asked students to write answers to questions we normally discuss when we do calendar. Is the number odd or even? How many hundreds, tens and ones does it have? How would you write it in words? How would you write it in expanded notation? What is one less than the number? What is one greater than the number? All the students were successful with this, but their response format tended to be messy so answers were all over the screen, I'll have to come up with a better template next time (divide screen into 6 boxes first).
