You'll find a variety of different types of flash cards here to support the numeracy concepts in kindergarten math. There are number cards, number cards with words, number cards with dots and just dot cards. The dot cards really help to support the concept of subitizing. Subitizing is the ability to know the number of objects just by looking at a grouping. Think of the pips on a dice, without counting 5, you automatically know by the configuration that there are five dots (pips) on the dice. Subitizing speeds up the process of identifying quantity in numbers and is am important concept in kindergarten and the first grade.

Flash cards that support number concepts help make math fun. Make these free number flash cards last longer by printing them on to card stock and then laminating them. Keep these handy and use them for a few minutes daily.
