Butterfly Counting Clip Cards
Prepare the Butterfly Counting Clip Cards
To get ready, I first printed out the cards on cardstock and laminated them for repeated use. After I cut them apart I placed them in a basket and grabbed some clothespins and counters. The counters are for help with counting while the clothespins are for clipping the answer.
How to Use the Butterfly Counting Clip Cards
Now that you have your cards all prepared, let’s get to the activity itself.
First, place all your cards either in a stack or in a small basket.
Then, have your child pick a card. Have them count the butterflies on the card. If they seem to be counting too fast, have them mark each butterfly with a dry erase marker or crayon.
Once they have finished counting, let them identify the correct answer on the bottom of the clip card. There are a few ways they can do this.
- They can use the clothespins to clip the correct answer
- Use counters and place it on the correct answer
- Use dry erase markers or crayons to circle the correct answer
The activity continues until all the clip cards have been completed.
Extension Activity for One-to-One Correspondence– Students can match the correct amount of counters to the correct number of butterflies on each card.
