A perfect subitizing game for a traditional tales topic or students who enjoy the story of Little Red Riding Hood. In this animated presentation, Little Red must look out for the big bad wolves as they pop up then disappear in the forest. Can students spot the number patterns and tell how many wolves there were without counting them individually?
Recognition of numbers 1 - 5 in this way, for example the dots on a dice, is known as perceptual subitizing and is an important step in early maths when students are developing an understanding of number. There are lots of opportunities for subitizing out there and I strongly recommend teaching your pupils this key skill.
