Subitizing Animal Activity

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 4 pages | Grades: PK - 1

A set of 4 animal templates for students to practice subitizing numbers and using one-to-one correspondence.

Use this resource when students are learning to subitize a small quantity and use one-to-one correspondence.

How to use this resource:

  • Print the animals on bright colored cardstock.
  • Students choose an animal and roll a die.
  • Students place a matching number of pompoms or counters on to the circles. To work on fine motor development, have your students use tweezers to pick up the pompom and place it on their mat.
  • They are finished when all of the circles have been covered.

Encourage students to recognize the number of dots on the die rather than count them.

This activity is great to use in a math center.
