Winter counting fun with my counting clip cards. A perfect addition to your math centers. Children can practice 1-10 counting and 1-10 numeral recognition with this set. This set is perfect for your preschool or pre-k classroom and winter-themed units.
This set includes two levels of color coded counting cards:
✔15 cards with dot patterns and numerals
✔33 cards with numerals
✔2 clip card book covers
✔directions and ideas for use
Younger children who have not mastered numeral recognition can use the 1-6 dot pattern set. The set with numerals contains 1-10 counting practice and is a bit more challenging. You will need at least one clothespin clip to complete this activity. Kids enjoy using clip cards plus they provide fine motor practice. The printable arrows can be attached to clothespin clips, but snowflake stickers, or white puffballs can be added to clothespin for additional thematic fun.
Children can practice the following concepts:
Children count the objects on a card and attach the clip to the correct numeral or dot pattern on the bottom of each card.
Children match cards with the same numeral or dot patterns on the bottom.
Hold up a number of fingers and ask children to find the card with that number of objects on it.
Construct the Same:
Ask children to count the same number of objects as pictured on the card using coins, buttons, or other thematic objects.
Select two different cards and ask children to tell you which one has the most, the least, the greater, or the fewer number of objects.
One More or One Less:
After counting the objects on the card, ask children to tell you how many there would be if you had one more or one less.
How Many Pairs:
Several of the cards contain pictures of pairs of boots, pairs of socks, or pairs of mittens. Ask children to count the objects individually and ask them to count the pairs.
Ask children to find all the cards containing objects that can be worn on their head, objects that can be worn on thier feet, objects that cannot be worn, etc. Several of the cards have mixed objects pictured on them. Using these cards, ask children to count the number of non-clothing items, the number of objects that can be worn on their head, the number of objects that can be worn, etc.
These cards are suitable for use in your preschool, pre-k, special education, early intervention, speech therapy or homeschool classroom. Bundle a set with a cute clip to make a great busy bag activity. Use them in your math centers or take-home math bags.
