Hey teacher friends! Are you as excited for spring as I am? Not only do I love all of the warm, sunny weather, but the spring-themed activities are always some of my favorites. Today I’m sharing our free Spring Easter Basket Addition Clip Cards (who else loves clip cards?!) that are perfect for Kindergarten morning tubs or math centers!
*Pair with our April Math & Literacy Clothespin Clip Cards for Kindergarten!
Spring Easter Basket Addition Clip Cards
This free download includes 16 clip cards that represent addition problems for sums from 2-10. Sums of 2 and 3 each have one clip card. Sums from 4-10 are all represented on 2 clip cards so students get to practice various representations of number combinations to those amounts.
If you’ve never used clip cards before, you have to start! One of the reasons I love clip cards is that they’re simple to prep and use.
Just print, laminate, and cut out. Then set the cards out with clothespins and you’re good to go! If you’re like me and you’ve misplaced clothespins before (oops!), use the laminated cards with dry erase markers instead.
How to Play
Each card has 2 baskets with a given amount of eggs inside. Students count the eggs in the baskets to determine the sum.
The cards each have 3 numbers on them so that students can demonstrate their ability to accurately identify numbers 1-10.
Once they determine the sum and the number that matches, they clip the clothespin on the appropriate total.
As teachers, we’re always looking for ways to observe and assess our students’ understanding of various skills and concepts. These addition clip cards are the perfect activity to help you assess:
- Fine motor skills
- 1:1 counting correspondence
- Number identification
- Counting strategies (counting on)
Subitizing is a very helpful skill when it comes to developing number sense and addition fluency. It refers to the ability to simply look at a set of objects and determine how many are there without counting.
I hope that you and your students love this Easter clip card activity and that it helps them further develop their addition skills!
