Arctic animal number clip cards

We are really excited to be moving further with counting, adding, and practicing basic math skills. Y has a very technical mind, like his daddy. I can already see that he tends to lean towards activities that are math based rather than language based. 

To accommodate him, I have been making math printables with more and more challenges for him. Today, I am sharing our Arctic themed number cards.

Winter Activities: 

Arctic animal number cards

Age: 2+

Why: This set of printable cards can be used to practice number order and number quantities.

We have been using materials like these since Y was about two years old. Alongside a manipulative for hands on work, cards like these help children to visualise how much a number is. This is very important. 

When learning to count, it is imperative to teach young children number quantity rather than only number order and number symbols. Remember, just because your child knows the order of numbers 1, 2, 3, etc, does not mean that they know how much a number represents. This is number quantity. 

Number quantity can be taught (or reinforced) alongside a simple printable and manipulative. You can use the manipulative to show your child how much each number symbol represents. 

To further challenge your child, this printable set also contains number quantity clip cards and missing number cards. 

How to use 

You can print these cards on durable paper such as card stock or another thick, quality paper. For additional durability, I also recommend laminating these cards. 

You can use number cards like this to practice number order with your child. I like to present them with a manipulative to allow Y to count out how much a number is.

These cards can also be used for skip counting! 

I love presenting number clip cards cards in this set alongside a manipulative for counting, such as buttons or beads. In addition, I present the clip cards along side mini clothes pins. However, you could also use a bead or a button as a marker for the correct answer, as well.
