Dots Collections

 

Why would I use cards like this to build automatic recognition of number?

Pink Blue Dots

 

I need to know if the colours are a distractor. Eight is eight, no matter what I make it from or what colours I use. Can you see beyond the pink and blue? If this is 8 dots then it is also 2 and 6 dots or five and three dots or 4 + 4dots. The ability to flexibly name numbers is foundational to building long term RECALL of facts.
