Fall Counting Clip Cards

These fall counting clip cards make a great addition to your math centers! If you don’t know what clip cards are, no worries! I’m here to share how they work, give you an alternative way to use them, as well as provide a few ideas to help you support your students.

How to Prep

The very first thing you’ll need to do is print the cards (download below), cut them apart, and laminate them for durability. Next you need to gather some clothespins. Once you have this ready, you’re all set to go!

If you find yourself without any clothespins on hand, this alternative idea is the solution you need!

Replace the clothespins with dry erase markers. Rather than clipping a clothespin to the corresponding number on the card, students use a dry erase marker to circle the number.

Laminate the cards and students can use a dry erase marker to circle the correct answer on the counting clip card.


The objective of using these clip cards is for students to practice counting a group of objects.

They’ll need to demonstrate 1:1 correspondence and an understanding that the last number said is the number of objects there are.

Additionally, by using these clip cards, your students will be demonstrating their ability to identify numbers 1-10.

How to Play

For this activity, students will select a card and count the fall-themed pictures shown the card.

Students count the number of fall items on the card and clip the correct corresponding number.

Then, they’ll find the corresponding number on the card and clip the clothespin to that number. Who knew counting could be so fun and so simple?

Support Your Students

I recommend having a number line on hand for students who need support with number identification. After students count the pictures on the card, they count down the number line until they get to the number they said.

For students who need support with 1:1 correspondence, give them a small manipulative to cover up the pictures they’ve counted.

For students who need support with 1:1 correspondence: Give them a small manipulative to cover up the pictures they've counted.

Another idea would be to have them make a small mark on each picture as they count it. This will help them correlate touching/counting a picture with a number. It will also help prevent them from recounting the same picture more than once.

You and your students are sure to love these Fall Counting Clip Cards!
