A quick and easy assessment for preschool, kindergarten, ESL, and special education students. This clothespin assessment can be used to monitor counting and numeral recognition. It also is a great fine motor activity for students working on hand strength - a precursor to future handwriting skills!
The teacher labels each clothespin with the numbers 0-9. Students then count the dots and clip the clothespin on to the correct box. This activity is designed for use with clothespins but can be expanded for use with a variety of items - use whiteboard markers to circle each dot and write the number, match to number flashcards, or even use as a BINGO board!
The template can be printed out on cardstock and laminated.
