Are you teaching or reviewing odd and even numbers? Use these 63 clip cards for easy practice and assessment!
New to clip cards? Students use a clothespin (or paperclip) and "clip" the answer to the question on the card. Then they turn the card around to see whether the clothespin is under the mark you made to identify the correct answer!
In this set you will receive:
✔4 pages of detailed directions for set up and student use, as well as options and suggestions for use
✔63 clip cards (numbers 0 - 20) - 3 types of cards
✔9 blank cards (so you can add larger numbers of choice to extend your learners)
✔2 assessment exit slips - students are asked to explain in writing why a number is odd or even; 1 assessment includes a number (13) and 1 assessment leaves the number blank so you can fill it in for your students (easy differentiation!)
✔One page chart of even and odd numbers 0 - 20; this can be used an answer key by teachers and students or even displayed in the classroom
This product is designed to be ink-friendly and does not use color ink for student work. For my classroom, I print my cards on neon and colored cardstock to enhance the design. If you need to conserve paper, these can also easily be printed two pages to a page (so 8 cards per paper). This size will work for student use, as well.
These cards are great for centers, progress monitoring, response to intervention, and assessment. Because you have several choices for the content, you can easily differentiate if needed. There are three types of cards in this product - cards with fish split into two rows, cards with fish in random placement, and cards with just numbers and no objects to count. The first set is perfect for when this topic is first introduced, as it helps reinforce the meaning of odd and even. The second set is just right for students who understand the concept of odd and even, but need reinforcement of scanning or one to one correspondence. The last set is for students who are ready to move beyond the concrete representations to the abstract realm of just numbers. If you choose to group the cards in sets, you could use the sets I have identified or mix cards from each set.
* Please note, you will need clothespins for your students to use these as self-checking assessments. My students enjoy using the mini clothespins, but the normal size ones work just as well. *
