Patriotic Stars Counting Clip Cards

My kids absolutely love clothespin activities (we use them all year long!). I love that they not only build essential math and literacy skills, but develop fine motor skills as well with the pinching of clothespins.

To get these counting clip cards ready, I laminated them, cut them out, and placed them in a small basket with clothespins for a festive math center that I knew would be a hit!

With these counting clip cards, students build fine motor skills as they pinch the clothespins.

How to Use Counting Clip Cards

I first played this game with my small groups. We were working on building up their one-to-one correspondence and these clip cards were the perfect activity!

We each grabbed a card, counted up the stars, and then found the matching number. After deciding together if it was correct, we clipped the numbers with clothespins. We counted and clipped until we finished the whole set.

When I felt that my students understood the activity, I placed these counting clip cards in our math centers. This activity is now a favorite in our class that all the kids run to!

Students count the number of stars and clip the matching number with a clothespin.
