This set of flash cards is designed to help students develop their ability to subitise, or ‘see how many at a glance’.
This skill is really important in the Early Years, as it sets the scene for the mental computation skills that kids will learn later on. It helps them to develop a really sound understanding of numbers and all the different ways that you can make amounts.
These cards can be used with the whole class, by class helpers (parents, support staff, older buddies) or in pairs. They can also be sent home so that children can practice subitising with their parents.
