I've just started reading Jessica Shumway's new-ish book Number Sense Routines and visual routines like these dot patterns are included. I love the way you turned it into an even bigger lesson about flexible thinking and the many paths to an answer.

Wonderful description of the possibilities of Number Talks! Thanks for sharing this. Interestingly, I think I did it a totally different way: adding 3+2 = 5 and then doubling it, since the upper five and the lower five are identically arranged.
