What is Subitizing?

Subitizing is the ability to recognize a small group of objects without counting. This would be with dots, dice, tally marks as examples of groups of objects. Subitizing is part of the development of number sense.

Today’s number printable works on learning to match groups of objects to the correct number. You will find ice cream scoops to match to a numbered cone.

You will find tally marks, number words, dice, and random dots for the scoops to match the number on the cone.

I recommend printing on cardstock and laminating so you can use these over and over.
