Watermelon themed count and clip cards are a fun, hands-on activity to help kids develop and build number sense skills plus work on their understanding of one to one correspondence.
Whether your kiddos are learning at home or in a classroom, count and clip cards are a great way to help kids learn and practice a variety of skills.
These cards are great for learning at home or in the classroom; they can be used independently or with a partner during math centers. Counting cards are also fun to put in a morning basket or take on-the-go. Just toss the cards and some clothespins in a zipper bag or container and you can take learning on the road!
Count and clip cards can also be self-checking by just making a small dot on the back of the card that corresponds with the correct answer. That way kids can check the answers on their own to make this an independent activity.
This activity is super easy to put togetherâ€¦just print then cut out each card. I like to laminate mine to make them extra durable, plus it gives me a reason to use my favorite laminator! Using cardstock also helps make them last a bit longer when being used by little hands.
