Subitising Dot Patterns - How Many Bubbles?

Subitising Dot Patterns - How Many Bubbles?

(0)
Subitising is the instant recognition of patterns of shapes to be able to determine a number. There are many different ways in which we all see these patterns and they are a lively discussion topic for any primary grade class to determine how we interpret these displays of dots. I encourage you to view this dot number talk by Jo Boaler in one of her many inspirational presentations https://vimeo.com/129139086 where she works through this concept with a middle primary group of students. This download comes with both a PowerPoint presentation and a PDF version with 27 slides/pages (including credits and terms of use). As the slides increase in difficulty the students transfer their knowledge from class discussions and can readily determine a quite complex display of dots on a page. The graphics are engaging and visually inviting for students with some wonderful clipart from Manny's Sketchpad . A useful addition to any Maths Teaching resource kit for primary school teaching.

COUNTING GAME 1-10- What's in the tree?

(0)
How to use this resource These fun mats can be laminated and used to match the animals of the students choosing to go and live in the trees. As laminated sheets students can use them to put matching playdough apples etc in the trees, trace over the letters and match counters or playdough in the ten frames provided. With larger numbers, students can use these as a dice game and see who can fill their tree first with the exact number shown on the mat. If you are looking at the number 8 and the child throws a 2, then they know they will need to throw a 6 or any combination that adds to 6 to complete their tree. If they throw a number that is too big, then they miss a turn. These mats can be used as part of group rotations with students filling all sets of cards as an activity. Suitable for pre-school or early kindergarten students.
