Christmas Friends at the Beach
Count and Clip Cards
(Quantities to 20)
Christmas Friends at the Beach Count and Clip Cards provide fun and inviting math centers for learners to practice counting quantities to 20. This packet has 5 Count and Clip Card activities. There are 21 clothespin clip cards for each activity. There is a set of clothespin clip cards with tropical Christmas graphics, tens frames, and a choice of three numerals printed on each card. The tropical Christmas graphics include coconut trees and palm trees decorated for Christmas, a surfboard, beachballs, a snowman made of sand, Santa in Hawaiian print shirts, a reindeer in sunglasses, a flamingo wearing a Santa hat, and a flamingo wearing a wreath.
Christmas Friends at the Beach Count and Clip Cards are a whimsical alternative to traditional colder climate Christmas themed materials. They are great for classrooms in Australia, New Zealand, and other locations in the southern hemisphere. This resource will work well in beach themed classrooms everywhere and classrooms in warmer climates in the southern United States.
Print, laminate, and cut out the clothespin clip cards. You will need 21 clothespins for each activity.
Learners determine the quantity represented by the ten frame and clip a clothespin on the correct numeral or they can use dry erase markers to circle 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.
Christmas Friends at the Beach Count and Clip Cards help learners develop numeracy and support the Math Common Core Standards for Counting and Cardinality.
The graphics used in Christmas Friends at the Beach Count and Clip Cards are from The Enlightened Elephant, Apples N Acorns, Ashley Hughes, Whimsy Workshop, Scrappin Doodles, Heather Ayers of Fun for Learning, and The Clip Art Graphics Guy.
