When you hold up 4 fingers, you don't count each finger. You subitize. This skill helps kids recognize how many items there are at a glance without counting each item every time.
Includes cards 1-10 for the following (cards come with and without dot border):

The ability to subitize is vital to early numeracy. These cards not only demonstrated quantity with dots and tallys and fingers, digits and written number words were also a welcome addition to create an entire package of what I consider to be effective early number sense flashcards that anyone can use in the classroom.
Currently, I do not include a list of activities with these flash cards, but they are good to use as flash cards. In small groups I like to hold up a card and let the two or three kids "compete" to read the card first (winner keeps the card). Or you could play a matching game with the cards face down, looking to match numbers. They love all of these.

I love these and have been wanting to make some so I am so happy that you did for me! I was wondering if it would be too much work for you to make these with something different than the polka dots. I think it may be too much visually for some kids to see the difference in the polka dots on the boarder and the dots to count. I have a few with vision issues as well as focusing and I would like to try them without the dots. If it is too much trouble, don't worry about it. I just thought I would ask. I love everything you are doing! I wish I was in your class! Daphne
