1. I’d never really thought about this, so it was interesting to read about it. And I love how you incorporated such lovely colourful items into this play!

2. I must admit that I focus a lot of Miss Possums learning around literacy and not so much math. We’ve done a little of it but I so need to do more before she starts school next year. I’ll be doing this for sure!

3. Subitising is all about what you can visually see, so this activity makes a lot of sense in terms of helping children to develop that maths concept/skill.

Now to find time to draw beautiful images like yours.

4. This has to be one of the most fun subitising activities I’ve seen. So colourful and playful. We play a matching game with dominoes, dice and game counters. My son loves it but I bet he’d REALLY love this.

5. These are great activities. I would love a clean shot of the turtle and the seahorse. Those would fit into my lessons. Maybe then I could print them out and trace them myself! Any chance of that?

6. Thanks for sharing this Janice. Love that idea. Always looking for new subatising games as we do a lot of that in the early years. We’ll be having a go of this one for sure 🙂

This is such an interesting post Janice. Thanks for sharing. I hadn’t thought about children learning in this way before, it looks like such engaging fun.

8. An excellent post Janice! Subitising is definitely a skill worth rehearsing and I love the games you have made. I will be making some for my Kinder class to add to the other subitising activities I have in place. Have you seen my post on Numicon? It is probably the next step as the numbers are organised in ten frame shapes but it is excellent when the children start instantly recognising the which piece reperesents which number! http://ponderingspossibilitiesprovocations.blogspot.com.au/2012/09/numicon.html

1. Hi Janice,

I printed off this awesome subitising idea a while ago, and have been meaning to contact you to ask if the game boards you created are available for purchase from TpT?

Thanks,
