Let’s subitize! Do your students enjoy a variety of math activities? There are times that students need lots of practice with certain skills. Students do not want to do the same thing again and again. However, I know my students can complete the same activity over and over again if it is in different formats. Subitizing is a great example of a skill that requires lots of practice. To help my students practice the same skill over and over again I created Flip Flop Subitizing is a memory-type game to reinforce my students’ number sense.
The game can be played as a memory-type activity. Flip-Flop Subitizing is a wonderful small group activity – flash the dot cards while students increase their subitizing ability to instantly recognize quantities.
Subitizing is the skill of instantly recognizing a quantity without having to count each object. This skill aids in students’ number sense.
Until next time,
