What is Subitizing? Well it certainly isn’t one of those words you use every day, but you’d be surprised how often you do it. Subitizing it the ability to recognize the number of a group of objects without having to physically count them. When was the last time you had to count all of the dots on a dice to see what number you rolled? If someone holds up 2 hands full of fingers, do you instantly know how many that is?
Subitizing is an important early element of building number building sense. Recognizing groups of numbers improves speed of calculation, and that is why our children are practicing in their beginning school years.
Practice and repetition is important while learning this skill, and when kids hear the word “practice,” they interpret that as, “boring.” My solution for boring homework, as usual, is to turn it into a game. My Subitizing Games pack, with 5 different activities to have fun practicing, is perfect for, math centers in the classroom, homeschool, and even extra math practice at home.
