A hands-on counting and fine motor activity for younger students.
Use this teaching resource in the classroom when teaching one to one correspondence, cardinality, and number recognition.
- Print this resource on cardstock to ensure durability.
- Cut along the dotted lines to create small activity cards.
- Provide your students with the cards and a bucket of clothespins.
- Students count the number of objects and use a clothespin to mark the correct number.
This is a great way to work on those fine motor skills too!
Common Core Curriculum alignment
Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects).
Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object with one and only one number name and each number name with one and only one object.
Understand that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted. The number of objects is the same regardless of their arrangement or the order in which they were counted.
Count to answer "how many?" questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects.
Count to 120, starting at any number less than 120. In this range, read and write numerals and represent a number of objects with a written numeral.
