This game is a great way to practice subitising (see below for definition). If you would like to print off your own copy it is available at the bottom of the page.
The Flower Pot Game
This activity helps children to develop the ability to subitise, which means being able to recognise how many items are in a small group without counting.
Subitising is important as it can help children to build visual images for numbers, which in turn helps them to learn number facts.
Playing dice games is another engaging way to encourage and develop subitising.
