This is a product that never goes out of season and is a must have for all teachers! As a teacher, I love putting concepts together and this product allows teachers to model the basics of math, put them to games, and allow students to build on their own knowledge!
Ohhhhhhh!!!! Daily centers and groups!! Make five per week and have groups rotate throughout the week. Love this. Cuts back on the constant "where do I go?" "What group was I in?" Love this! It's a must do for math time!
Do you subitize in your classroom? Here is a freebie to try it out. Project slides on your IWB, with your document camera, or print them out. After introducing students to the concept, flip through slides, starting at a rate of about 3 seconds per slide.
This smart board file is a collection slides with different dot configurations to be used for subtilizing. Dots range from 1-5. The game is "Tell Me Fast". Flash a slide and quickly move to the next slide which is blank, when you land on the blank slide ask students how many they saw and what configurations they saw (3 and 2, 1 and 4).
