While the child is not looking, fill your egg carton with a random number of hydrogel beads (1 bead per compartment) and ask your child to tell you the total number without actually counting. Subitizing is being able to instantly recognize, without counting, the number of objects present in a small group. Helping children pick up this skill at a young age will allow them to move quickly to developmental math strategies in the future.
