This resource provides fun and inviting Alaska themed mental math centers for learners to practice counting quantities to 20. This packet has five sets of ten frames number sense clip card activities. There are 21 clothespin clip cards for each activity. You may use all 21 clip cards for each activity or select the range you want to address for a specific lesson. There are ten frames with dog sled race themed pictures and a choice of three numerals printed on each clothespin clip card. The graphics include musher kids, trophies, sled dogs, lanterns, and dogs at the race starting line.
Print, laminate, and cut out the clothespin clip cards. You will need 21 clothespins for each activity if you use all the cards for quantities of 0-20.
Learners use the ten frames to determine the quantity of sled dog race pictures and clip a clothespin to the numeral that corresponds with the quantity represented by the ten frames. They can use dry erase markers to circle the correct numeral instead of clipping a clothespin on the correct numeral. You may opt to make these cards self-checking by writing the answer on the back or marking a dot on the back at the correct spot.
These activities help learners develop numeracy and support the Math Common Core Standards for Counting and Cardinality.
The graphics used in this packet are from Scrappin Doodles.
