Launch your student into learning with this hands-on match activity: Space Counting Clip Cards.

What’s Included in the Space Counting Clip Cards 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.

How to Use the Space Count and Clip Cards

This set of counting clip cards is easy to use.

  1. 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.
  2. After you assemble the cards, laminate for durability.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
