Product Description
Counting Spots - Kindergarten Fluency to Five

Kindergarteners need to have computational fluency to 5... what does that REALLY look like?? Are they fluent because they can complete a worksheet??? No, absolutely not! Fluency means MENTAL MATH and flexibility in solving problems.

These questions move the child from needing to see and count dots/objects (concrete learning), to being able to quickly identify the number they see and tell about the combination. This stage develops the mental visualization that students need in order to become fluent with number combinations and move into mental math strategies. This is the first step on our {FREEBIE} 5-step Computational Fluency Chart.

Cards include subitizing random collections, standard dot patterns, and five-frames for developing visual memory of number combinations.

Counting Spots has broken those steps down using the research from Bob Wright, Anne Stafford, Jim Martland and Math Recovery. Follow the steps to help your students or child learn to make and break numbers. The FOUNDATION for future algebra and higher math!
