Here is a fun way to work on subtilizing using foam or raised stickers. The children can touch/feel/count and also practice on subitizing. I used 8 1/2 x 11 copy paper and large heart sticks found at the Dollar Tree for these cards. You can also use laminated card stock or 4x6 index cards.
I also make subitizing cards using two different colors. Children can work on many different levels this way. Some children will be counting the set to know that is has 5 hearts. Some children will be working on subitizing or "knowing" there are 5 hearts without counting. Some children will begin to see that 5 can be a set of 2 and 3 as show below with the 2 different number combinations.
Easy, peasy! Lots of learning happening!
Have fun subitizing! Don't forget to sign up by email at the top right corner of the page.
