Hello Living Life and Learning readers! I’m Tina, and I blog over at Simple Fun for Kids. I love all the printables Monique posts on Living Life and Learning every week, and I’m really excited to get to share one of mine with you today!
We’re getting ready for Valentine’s Day and make sure to include the theme in our learning activities, too. Lately, we’ve been working on number sense, and these One More, One Less Hearts Clip Cards are perfect for this!
This is a great way to help the kids work on their numbers and find their confidence in doing so as well! You can never really start working with them too early on number recognition so this is a great way to start that process.
One More or Less Heart Clip Cards
We definitely love clip cards around here! Check out these Princess Counting Cards and Puzzles and Dinosaur Counting Cards and Puzzles right here on Living Life and Learning. On Simple Fun for Kids, my favorites are my Vegetable Addition Clip Cards.
The One More, One Less clip cards I’m sharing today are a little different from others I’ve made, because they require two clothespins each to mark two answers.
If you prefer not to cut up the individual cards, this is a no-prep printable that you can use with pom poms, mini erasers, or markers. Alternatively, your kindergartner can actually write the numbers on the blank hearts.
The printable includes numbers 0-10. As you can see below, they’re simple and easy to use. The kids will love using the clip cards and you’ll love the easy from a parental aspect as well.
E loves hearts, and she was really excited when she saw these cards. She insisted on cutting them apart herself. It wasn’t perfect, but she does surprisingly well for her age, and it makes her feel like the cards are really hers. This was her first introduction to one more, one less, and the one less part, in particular, required a bit of thought, but she caught on quickly and got a kick out of clipping two clothespins to each card.
Make certain to work on this counting cards with the kids. They’ll start to gain a lot more confidence in their math skills once they’re able to use these clip cards regularly. And they’ll love the fun Valentine’s Day theme too!
Don’t be surprised if they’re going to want to use these cards all year long and that’s totally fine! There’s nothing wrong with them wanting to continue to learn and use this free resource to do so. The heart theme just makes it that much more fun and festive to use!
