Subitize Rock (sŭbitize) to 10 - Challenge - can your child say the number before it appears on the screen?

Subitize to 10. Subitize is the ability to tell the number of objects in a set, quickly, without counting. In this subitizing song name the numbers in each set of dots, ten frames and fingers. Subitizing develops math fluency, when students recognize sets without having to count each object and it helps develop number sense and the ability to perform mental math. In this version of Subitize Rock we show the numeral after each set for reinforcement. Practice your subitizing with this subitize song. Subitize to 10.

The Seasons Song is a Science song that teaches the seasons of the year. The Seasons Song teaches the Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. We have noticed that some people say fall and have talked about why they say that...we know that is another way of saying autumn. Great that it has sub-titles!
