Teaching the math concept of subitizing to children. The ability to subitize is an important part of developing a strong mathematical foundation.
There are two components of subitizing; conceptual and perceptual.
Perceptual subitizing is the instant visual recognition of a pattern such as the dots on a die.
Conceptual subitizing is recognizing smaller groups and adding them together, such as two dots plus two dots equals four dots.
Conceptual subitizing can also help students advance to more addition and subtraction.
Students need practice subitizing.
Once your students are quickly recognizing a group to five you can then move to the 6 to 12 dot cards.
Encourage students to play any of these games as free- time or station activity.
