What do you call a group of penguins? A waddle! Let your student count and compare these waddles in our Penguin Count and Clip Cards. This set of printable cards adds extra fun to your polar animals theme or lesson plans.
What’s Included in the Penguins Count and Clip Set?
This count and clip card set includes 16 printable cards:
- Four of the cards ask the student to compare, “Which one has less?”
- Four of the cards ask the student to compare, “Which one has more?”
- Eight of the cards ask the student to count to a specific number.
The cards include answers on the back. This allows students to check their own answers and receive immediate feedback.
The Penguins Count and Clip Cards provide a fantastic hands-on counting activity for your students.
How to Use the Penguins Count and Clip Cards
- Cut out the cards. Fold on the dotted line to hide the answer (on the back of the card). If desired, glue the strip down.
- After you assemble the cards, laminate for durability.
- Show student how to use the clip cards by determining more, less, or the right quantity. Student should place a clip on the card with her answer.
- Student can turn over the card to check her own work. If she didn’t get it right on the first try, encourage her to count again.
Extend the Learning with More Math Concepts
Once your student masters the Penguins Count and Clip Cards, try some of these ideas:
- When comparing which ice floe has less, ask your student, “How many less penguins are there?”
- When comparing which ice floe has more, ask your student, “How many more penguins are there?
- Ask your student to count all of the penguins on the card. “How many penguins are there altogether?”
- Purchase some plastic penguins and use an ice cube tray to create ice floes. Practice one to one correspondence, simple addition, and simple subtraction with these chilly manipulatives.
