The clip cards are super easy to prep and use in the classroom. All you have to do is print the strips, grab some clips, and let the kids do the rest.

Differentiated Math Practice

You can choose whether or not to use the included recording sheet. When students use the sheet they will also get practice with number formation. You can also write the number on each handwriting line as a guide for students to follow and this can also serve as a way for them to self-check their answers.

You can also make the cards self-checking by adding a dot or small sticker to the back of the card to mark the correct choice.

This resource can be used independently or students can work in pairs to support each other. A number line can be used as a reference for students who need that extra support.
