Math question

Our district adopted My Math this year and so far I really like it. I love all the problem solving and writing to explain their thinking. I currently give counters to the children who request them but wonder at what point should they be expected to learn their math facts. My kiddos rely heavily on their fingers when they aren't using their counters. This is only my 2nd year in first after being in kindergarten for many years. We discuss the many strategies they can use but most of them always go back to their fingers. Thoughts?

i love this question! DO you offer them many opportunities (like on rekenreks, or playing simple games) to subitize? We' ve adopted Mind Institute's program called ST MAth and I love it because it gives the the esperience before it gives them the vocabulary.

I'm not familiar with rekenreks. We do practice with subitizing and we play games in partners. I know it's early in the year but I just wanted to hear the thoughts of others. Thanks for taking time to respond.
