*Perceptual subitizing: instantly recognizing "how many" in a set
Conceptual subitizing: efficiently finding "how many" by recognizing and combining subgroups within a set.

I teach Kindergartners and I was very excited when I came across this lesson. This lesson has full alignment to depth and breadth of standard NC.Math.K.CC.4. I can see that the lesson has clear learning objectives. The lesson has clear assessment strategies that can accurately measure student progress and mastery of the specified standard. The instructional purpose and alignment with the North Carolina curricular standard is explicitly stated and easily inferred, and students are engaged in an activity that promotes critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity. A technology piece where students answer remotely might be an added piece that would enhance the teacher’s assessment of the students ability to perceptually subitizing.

* I am second grade teacher and this lesson is amazing to use in the classroom for students who are EC or who have a hard time understanding the concepts of numbers.* This lesson has full alignment for the standards NC.M.K.CC.4. This standard is so very important to kindergarten learning. *This lesson has clear learning objectives and this would be amazing to use for student rigor as well as knowledge. *This lesson is also a great way to promote collaboration within groups especially at a small group table or lesson *This lesson/resource has some ways for assessment but could be more clearly defined. *This resource may want to examine additional technology examples that would allow whole class responses to discussion question
