Clip cards are quite possibly one of my favorite learning activities in the classroom. I love that you can work on building not only academic skills, but also strengthening fine motor muscles as well! I love to make things extra fun by incorporating seasonal activities. These pumpkin addition clip cards are perfect for early learners to practice beginning addition and combining sets this fall!

Pumpkin Addition Clip Cards
My kids are very familiar with clothespin activities, since my kindergarteners use our clip card activities all the time, so after a quick introduction to the cards and the task, they were ready to give them a try!
To get these cards ready for my kids, I simply printed them out (below) and laminated them to keep them sturdy for repeated use.
How to Use the Clip Cards
Each pumpkin card has two dice on it. After adding both sets of dots together, kids clip the sum. That’s it!
This is great beginning addition practice, as the dots on the dice provide support for kids who still need to count one dot at a time, while allowing kids who are ready to practice counting on from the larger number the opportunity to strengthen that skill.
Not only are kids practicing their addition skills, but the pinch and release of clothespins is strengthening their writing muscles in their fingers, building up fine motor strength too!
