This simple and engaging math center combines foundational math skills with fine-motor skills! This center requires very little preparation... just print and cut the addition cards and add clothespins. Students solve the addition problems and place a clothespin on the correct answer. This packet contains 2 sets of cards--sums within 5 and sums within 10 (over 50 in all), so differentiation is easy! You choose which set best meets your students' needs. I print multiple copies of each set on different colored paper for easy organization.

Common Core Standards Addressed:
K.OA.1 Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings2, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.
K.OA.5 Fluently add and subtract within 5.
