This product has various dot combinations of the numbers 1 – 5 on a picture of a paper plate which you can print on cardstock and laminate. I like to print the dot paper plates on both sides of the cardstock to save paper and be more efficient.
I came up with the following dot plate combinations to use throughout the product:
For the number 1, two different placements of the dot
For the number 2, four different placements of the dots
For the number 3, six different placements of the dots
For the number 4, eight different placements of the dots
For the number 5, ten different placements of the dots
With the above dot plate combinations, I created many different slides that I can use in mental math or centers or whole group or small group instruction to use to help the students with the concept of subitizing.
This product includes the following:
-21 suggested activities
-Pictures of blank paper plates
-2 plates side by side
-1 big plate
-Individual dot plates with the different dot combinations for the numbers 1 to 5
-Dot Plate Fans
-Dot Plate Cards (can be used for concentration or to create decks of cards)
-Various Dot Plate cards
-2 plates per sheet (one has different dot arrangements and 1 is blank.
-2 plates per sheet (each plate has a dot arrangement so students can talk about which one is one more or one less)
-3 plates per sheet (2 plates with same number but different dot arrangements and third plate with different number)
-4 plates per sheet (3 plates with same number but different dot arrangements and fourth plate with different number)
This product covers the new NS Grade Primary Outcome N02: Students will be expected to recognize at a glance, and name the quantity represented by familiar arrangements of 1 to 5 objects or dots. The Common Core equivalent outcome is Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g, by using matching and counting strategies.
