Subitizing is looking at a group of objects and instantly recognizing how many objects are in the group without having to take the time to count. It is an important skill that helps develop number sense and prepare children for mental math.Learning GoalsThis game is designed to help children strengthen their subitizing skills as they: Make small collections up to five without timing Identify small collections up to five objects without counting Learn and reinforce number names and symbols Understand that quantity can be represented by a numeral or a set of objects Compare sets of one to five objects and identify if the sets are the same or different Count from one to fiveJungle Gym is part of the four-game subitizing suite from Early Math with Gracie & Friends, a first-of-its-kind mobile app brand based in early learning sciences, rigorously researched and developed specifically for preschool classroom use.
