Help reinforce number word recognition, with these quick, easy and fun fall-themed matching games.
Simply print, laminate and trim. I keep each set in their own Baggie with a few “pincher” clothespins, then toss the Baggies in a basket which is kept in my math center.
Students pinch and place a clothespin to the number (0-10) that matches the number word on the apple, pumpkin, leaf, spider, owl, bat or turkey.
Pinching clothespins is a great fine motor skill that will help strengthen those finger muscles, plus my kiddos love doing this.
To make this an independent center, so that students can self-check their work, mark an X on the correct answer on the back of the card; in no time at all, everyone will be recognizing their number sight words.
Students can also pick a partner and play “Speed” to see who will be the first to get all of their clothespins clipped.
These games are great for "early finishers" or a super-fun "word work" activity for Daily 5.
So that you can easily program higher numbers, like those “toughie teens”, I’ve also included a blank set of each of the fall graphics.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy “pinching & placing” as much as mine do.
