Number Talks - Subitising Task Cards

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 10 pages | Years: 1 - 2

Build number sense skills with this set of 30 subitising task cards.

Use this set of task cards to easily implement number talks into your classroom.

Number talks are meant to be short, daily, maths activities that allow students to have meaningful and highly engaging conversations about maths. These exchanges will lead to the development of more accurate, efficient, and flexible strategies for students.

This teaching resource is designed to help your students with subitising.  The ability to subitise, or instantly recognize small arrangements of items, is a foundation skill for developing number sense.

Show students the front of the card briefly, giving them enough time to see the card without counting what is on it. Then lower the card out of sight, and ask the prompts on the back.

Print out the task cards front and back so that the prompts are displayed on the back of each card. The cards can also be put on a ring for added convenience.
