The ability to subitize is an important part of developing strong math foundation. Students need to conceptually and perceptually understand numbers. Conceptual subitizing is the ability to recognize a smaller groups and add them together. Perceptual subitizing is the ability to recognize a pattern as a given number.
The more times children are exposed to number patterns then they will begin to internalize the information. With this instant recognition the students will no longer have to count each set to find out how many are in a group. When the children have internalized the patterns they will be able to add by counting up and eventually by just adding the numbers in their “heads”.
When students understand “how many” your children will :
Count on from a known pattern set
Combine numbers from sets
Develop mathematical fluency
