"Subi-what? Subitize!"

The ability to subitize is a foundational skill that both children and adults use every single day. This session will focus on developing the skill of subitizing in the primary grades and using that skill to strengthen a child’s numerical foundation. Participants will engage in a hands-on, interactive session and walk away with practical ideas and tools to use in their classroom right away.
