## Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Roll A Snowman - Section 2: Roll a Snowman

Subitizing is "instantly seeing how many." The spatial arrangement on the die helps children with this skill. Some of my students were able to instantly read the numeral on the die, others had to use their fingers and count one to one. My hope is that continued activities like this will help children with subitizing.
