To develop a sound number sense children need to be able to instantly recognise the number of items in a group without counting, that’s what subitising is. These cards are designed to develop and promote the skill of subitising.
Explain to the children that you are going to display various cards showing different numbers of objects. They are to tell you how many objects they see when a card is shown, encourage quick, automatic recognition of the subitising patterns. There are 2 different cards representing numbers 1-10, children can play Snap or Memory using the provided subitising cards, this would be great for a maths centre game. Send the cards home as part of your homework so that children can consolidate subitising at home.
