Interactive Subitizing Powerpoint

I have been trying to think of ways to help my students subitizing skills. I have the prerequisite flashcards printed, we do look at the at least once a week (probably not enough I know). But needed something easy and quick to fill in those moments with some learning.

So this was born

What is it? It is your flashcards in a powerpoint! And it has both ten frames and twenty frames, making it perfect for differentiation.
But there is more!
The ten frame and twenty frame pages each have the choice of 3 different speeds so again, differentiation is easy!

The slow speed is set at 5 seconds, medium at 3 and fast at 1 second to really challenge those brains!

The best part about this is once you pick your level, the show runs for you! (giving you 1 minute of total peace  valuable assessment time to watch your students while rummaging in your desk for the emergency chocolate).

The bonus round is a mix of ten and twenty frames and is set to 3 seconds each.

I always give one away when I blog about something new....
Tell me why this would be a great tool to have in your classroom. Don't forget your email! I will pick one random number in 24 hours  from now (10am Sydney time on Friday)

go and grab it in my TPT store by clicking any of the pics.

  2. This would provide a wonderful way to practice this skill in a quick, easy fashion!

  3. It looks awesome, Brooke!

    We've got a BIG focus on subitising this term with the preps and this would be AMAZING to practise as part of our number fluency activities.

  4. This would be perfect for my students w/ ieps as well as AIS students. They could easily be included w/ their peers. Subitizing is so important in the common core.

  5. Brooke you never cease to amaze me with all of your unique ideas! I can't tell you how much my kids loved your summer reading and math centers! Amazing! This idea of using powerpoint to practice subitizing is great! This would be especially helpful for my students who have attention difficulties as it would really engage them! LOVE it! :o)

    A is for Apple B is for Blog

    1. Karen, my random number was 4. I'll be sending it your way.

  6. I just love this - creative, colourful and engaging. You are amazing and your classroom must be a great place to be.

  7. This looks SUPER!!!! My kiddos need LOTS of practice with subitizing..........and it would give me 1 minute to breathe :-) Love this!!!

  8. Looks wonderful to achieve automaticity / fluency with my kids!

  9. Another exciting,engaging product from the amazing Brooke Beynon....can see this capturing the attention of my low group who have very short attention spans. This is sure to get them in!

  10. What a great way for little ones to practice focusing and recognizing number models. Thanks for the chance to win!

  11. This would be great for practicing with ten frames... last year, some of my babies just didn't "get" it!


  12. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I put it on for the preppies today and they loved it too :)

    If you were to make one for the M100W words(golden, red, blue and green levels for my preppies) I would purchase it straight away (hint hint :)

    1. Hey Jen....your wish is my command! Just listed the sight word one and it goes up to Orange level!
