This pirate themed resource provides fun and inviting math centers for your little pirates to practice addition within 20. There are 5 addition clip card math centers activities in this packet. Each activity has 12 clothespin clip cards and a recording sheet. There is an addition fact and a choice of three sums printed on each clothespin clip card. The cards and recording sheets have matching graphics. These task cards are great for morning tubs, early finishers, informal assessment, and take home practice. These activities work well for Talk Like a Pirate Day, but may also be used at any time during the year.

Print, laminate, and cut out the clothespin clip cards. Print the recording sheet that goes with the clothespin clip cards. You will need 12 clothespins for each activity.

Learners clip a clothespin on the correct sum or they can use dry erase markers to circle the correct sum. You may opt to make these cards self-checking by writing the answer on the back or marking a dot on the back at the correct spot.

After selecting the correct sum, learners write the equation and sum on the recording sheet.

These activities help learners develop addition fluency within 20 and support the Math Common Core Standards for Operations and Algebraic Thinking.

Thank you for looking at this resource. I hope you and your learners enjoy these activities.

Have fun adding on the high seas with your pirate friends!
