Students solve the addition and/or subtraction equations. They use a clothespin to “clip” the equations that equal the number on the top of the card (great fine motor practice!). Cards are color coded to help keep you organized!
There are 3 optional recording sheets included to hold students accountable for their work. “I Can” visual directions are also included.
As teachers, we need a ton of games and activities in our bag of tricks. We need to have several activities for our students to practice the skills we are teaching. It’s Hip to Clip is a fun way for your students to practice addition and subtraction. A perfect addition your bag of tricks!
Teacher Tip: Print on card stock for durability. BEFORE laminating, put a small sticker on the back of the correct beginning sounds pictures to make this activity self checking (see picture in the preview).
