About these products: We know that perceptual subitizing can be so much easier to help students visually master number recognition and therefore nurture a stronger number sense to 20. We have seen a ton of growth with our students and being able to perceptually figure out and master these numbers, but do they really have them mastered? It wasn’t until we introduced conceptual subitizing that we weren’t so sure?
With this product, we have created several different conceptual subitizing activities to help build a stronger and more solidified number sense to 20. We have discovered that if they cannot master both techniques, their number sense is still fairly weak and they need more fun, exciting and engaging ways to practice with activities that will help to strengthen and build a solidified number sense for continued foundational growth. We have used clear circles to students can color different groups and add sums.
*Print the Mats 1-6 in this download on cardstock and laminate them. Have the students use dry erase markers to color and count. They can also use 2 (or more) different colors to color different groups and find sums. These mats are great for centers, small group activities, for intervention and individual use.
*Power Point:We have also included a conceptual subitizingpowerpoint to use on a promethean board. The students can color the dots and then write the number. After each “how many?” slide, the following slide displays the answer and a way to recheck if not correct.
File Folder Game: To use this file folder game: Cut out the cards, laminate and back with Velcro. Cut out the numbers, put Velcro on the back. Have the children use a dry erase marker to color 10 circles, then have the student use another color marker to color the circles that are left. Have them say 10, then count on to get the answer. Then, have them find the number that corresponds and Velcro underneath.
