How to Use Beach Themed Counting Clip Cards
We all know how important it is to work on our fine motor skills when we're learning a new skill. That's why I always grab some clothespins for my son- they can be used in so many ways, like holding onto erasers or pompoms while creating something with their hands!
Here are the full instructions:
- Print out each page (I recommend card stock for long usage)
- Laminate pages
- Demonstrate how to use a manipulative, marker, or clothespin to “clip” the correct answer
Here are some extras you might need:
–A laminator– If you want to keep these printables around as long as you can, so I recommend laminating the pages so you can get the most use out of them. I have three children, so these cards get a lot of use.
-Scissors- You have to cut out the cards, you can use scissors, or this fancy paper cutter.
–Manipulatives– This is just a fancy word for something they can use with their hands to create or solve the problem with. So you can use anything you have on hand. Pompoms, tiny erasers, or clothespins to help those fine motor skills muscles. I always go for the clothespins, because opening them is SO good for those muscles they'll need when they start writing.
