A great addition to your caterpillar, butterfly, or children's book unit!
*Please note that this product is included in my Caterpillar and Butterfly Math Bundle for Preschool and Early Childhood . If you purchase the money-saving bundle, you DO NOT need to purchase this product.
This set includes 8 clip cards and directions/ideas for use. Children can use a caterpillar clothespin (directions included) or a plain clothespin with the activity. The cards can be used to compare to the classic children's story as well as to practice numerous early math concepts. Using a clothespin is also a great activity to help build fine motor skills.
Object Counting: Count the objects on a card and attach the caterpillar clip to the correct numeral or dot pattern on the bottom of each card. Both numbers and dot patterns are used on the cards
Numeral Recognition: Compare the cards. Find cards with the same numeral or dot patterns on the bottom. Make the caterpillar “eat” all of the 5’s, 3’s, etc.
Subitizing: Hold up a number of fingers and ask your child to find the card with that number of objects on it.
Construct the Same: Ask your child to count the same number of objects as pictured on the card using coins, buttons, or other objects.
More/Less/Compare: Select two different cards and ask your child to tell you which one has the most, the least, the greater, or the fewer number of objects.
One More or One Less: After counting the objects on the card, ask children how many objects the caterpillar would eat if he ate one more or one less.
These cards are suitable for use in your preschool, pre-k, special education, early intervention, speech therapy or homeschool classroom. Bundle a set with a cute caterpillar clip to make a great gift or busy bag activity. Use them in your math centers or take-home math bags.
Please see the preview file for a sample of the cards and a picture of caterpillar clips.
