Math Coachs Corner: Cant Get Enough Subitizing! To subitize (pronounced soo-bi-tize) means to instantly recognize a small quantity of objects without counting. When you hold up four fingers and a student says 4 without counting, they are subitizing. Students should practice subitizing with a variety of objects and arrangements. Five- and ten-frames are great for subitizing because of their anchors to 5 and 10.

Excellent way to conceptually teach subtraction with regrouping. (Borrowing a bundle of tens)
