Back-To-School Counting Clip Cards

Are you looking for a simple and engaging math activity for your students to do at the beginning of the school year? These Back-To-School Counting Clip Cards are not only an easy and interactive way for children to practice counting and identifying numbers, but they will also work on developing their fine motor skills too.

How To Use The Back-to-School Counting Clip Cards:


  • Back-to-School Counting Clip Cards (3 pages)
  • White Card Stock
  • Printer
  • Laminator
  • Laminating Pouches
  • Paper Cutter or Scissors
  • Clothes Pin

To prepare this activity, print these Back-To-School Counting Clip Cards on white card stock. I recommend laminating cards for extra durability too. Then, you can use either a paper cutter or scissors to cut the cards apart. Put the cards and clothespins in a small container such as a pencil box or pouch. This is an easy and inexpensive math activity to prepare. At this time of the year, you can find pencil boxes or pouches and clothespins at the dollar store.

This resource goes well with:


To begin this activity, children will select a clip card and count the number of school supplies that are pictures. They will then place a clothespin on the number that matches the set.  Students continue counting from 1 to 10 and clipping the cards until they have clipped all of the cards.
