Subitizing, perceptual (instant recognition of a quantity of objects) and conceptual (recognizing smaller groups of objects and adding them together), is an important early math skill which will aid students as they progress to more difficult topics.

This packet contains four sets of ten objects divided into Christmas/winter holiday themes:

* Red frame: Poinsettias (poinsettias placed sequentially in tens frame)
* Yellow frame: Candles
* Green frame: Ornaments (3 colors)
* Tan frame: Gingerbread

Select the cards you wish to have your students practice. Laminate, cut out and post at various locations around the room. Alternatively, the cards may be placed into a container for use at a learning center.

Counting Pages: Half-page answer sheets for each set are provided for the children to record their answers. These are ideal for use with mini-clipboards which are easier for young children to manage. Also provided are pages with three response options from which to select the correct amount.

Do your students need an extra challenge? Additional full-page recording sheets have been included for the children to: (1) copy the tens frame and record how many, (2) write what comes after, (3) write what come before, and (4) write what comes both before and after. If you use mini-clipboards in your classroom, simply fold the pages in half and have your students complete one side at a time.

Addition & Subtraction Pages: For each set two addition and subtraction pages are provided to allow for differentiation. Included are one addition page each to five and ten as well one subtraction page each from five and ten. Have fun with this activity.

Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 - 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
Fluently add and subtract within 5.
10 can be thought of as a bundle of ten ones - called a “ten.”
Understand that the two digits of a two-digit number represent amounts of tens and ones. Understand the following as special cases:
