Back to school is such a busy season, and teachers everywhere have laminators working double time to prepare fun centers and activities for their new kids. These Back to School Kindergarten Clip Cards for math and literacy are the perfect resource to have on hand for go-to centers that not only build skills, but fine motor too!
Back to School Kindergarten Clip Cards
The back to school clip cards include a wide variety of skill practice that is geared toward beginning kindergarteners. All cards come in both color and black and white (147 cards total!)
Using them in centers is easy – just print, laminate, cut, and add clothespins! Kids grab a card and clip the correct answer.
Some teachers also print the black and white versions as recording sheets or review pages for kids to complete with a writing tool.
Kids will work on a ton of fun skills in this pack including learning:
- upper and lowercase letters
- beginning sounds
- color words
- counting sets
- counting ten frames
You can choose which cards kids work on in small groups or during centers to target specific skills, or mix them up for a review.
Most cards have 3 choices for an answer, ensuring that there is a little more challenge than choosing between just 2, but not so many that it’s overwhelming for kids to complete.
Did you know squeezing clothespins is great for building up finger strength, which can help with writing? That’s another reason I adore clothespin cards so much!
If you wish to make these cards self-correcting, print on cardstock (so they aren’t see-through) and mark the correct answer with a dot on the back of each card. Kids can clip, then check their work.
