A quick and easy assessment for preschool, elementary school, ESL, and special education students. These clothespin assessments can be used to monitor counting, numeral/letter recognition, beginning phonics sounds, sight words, and more! It also is a great fine motor activity for students working on hand strength - a precursor to future handwriting skills.
The 9 matches include:
1) uppercase letters
2) lowercase letters
3) alphabet pictures (beginning sounds A-Z)
6) color names
7) dot counting
8) numbers 1-20
The teacher labels each clothespin with the appropriate letters A-Z, numbers 0-9, shapes, or colors. Students then match each clothespin 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 item and write the letter/number/color word, match to flashcards, or even use as a BINGO board!
