Squirrel Away – Subitizing Game for Structuring Numbers (1-6)

“Can we play again?”

This is an awesome game I use to help teach spatial patterns and subitizing while working on structuring numbers with my first-grade math intervention group. They love it! This is the 1-6 version. The 7-12 version will be coming soon.

Squirrel Away Number Match 1-6 Game from Kat and SquirrelCCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.A.1
Count to 100 by ones and by tens.

Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.

Count to answer “how many?” questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a
rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a
number from 1-20, count out that many objects.

Count to 120, starting at any number less than 120. In this range, read and write numerals
and represent a number of objects with a written numeral.
