I’ve been playing the kindergarten subitizing math game with my Kindergarten son and he LOVES it! Subitizing is the rapid recognition of groups, such as 6 dots on a dice without counting the dots. My son LOVES the monsters and figuring out where they match. So naturally, he would love a subitizing game with a monster theme.
Kindergarten Subitizing Math Game
How To Play
Print and laminate monster cards and data sheets. – I gave my son a dry erase marker so we could play it over and over again.
Have your child look at each card to figure out how many dots are in each 10 frame.
Once they have figured it out they must find the monster that matches the card and record the number on the data sheet.
Use in the Classroom
Although I’ve been using this game at home, it is great for a whole classroom. You could set up the cards around the classroom and students can walk around and figure out what number of dots match each monster, or they can do it at their tables for a fun, learning activity.
Students will have fun figuring out which silly monster goes with what the number of dots. This activity also helps students (and has helped my son) work on writing their numbers.
This game was so much fun and it held my son’s attention for quite a while. He liked sitting down to play the game but what he loved even more was when I would put the cards around the house and we would have a little scavenger hunt. He would run around the house with his data sheet on a clip board and find each card in a different room.
It was a great way to add some movement into his learning and get some of his (endless) energy out! I think your kindergartners will love this game as much as we did!
