Numbers 1–20 Clip Cards

PDF | 5 pages|Grades: Pre-K - 1

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.

This activity is ideal to use in your guided math groups or as a math center activity.

  • 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!
