We love learning about space and have a fun new printable for you.
A set of space themed count and clip cards that your kids will love to use.
So here we go our Out of this World Maths Clip Cards to use and support your child counting.
Space Count and Clip Cards
This set of clip cards is really easy to use and one that we bring out with our kids when we focus on our Space themed Units.
We put out the set for the kids with a clothes peg and let them explore as they will as well as sit with a focus activity helping them count out the space characters.
This particular set has been created for use with children that are progressing from counting objects in regular arrangements to be a little more challenging.
The space themed objects on the cards are different sizes and in an irregular arrangement.
What you will Need to Create your Own Space Count and Clip Cards
To create your own set of cards head over to our store and get your Space Themed Count and Clip Cards.
We find it best to print on to card as this makes the individual cards last longer and easier to hold.
With equipment like this we also recommend laminating the cards to make them longer lasting.
Using the Space Themed Clip and Count Cards with your Child
When using the count and clip cards together instead of an independent activity I like to start by reading a space-themed book aloud.
Then we start with the numbers the child is confident with and work on those first.
Once we review those numbers we start with the next set.
I often use a counter the first time we work on 1 to 1 counting to help my child to count the objects when focusing on numbers 6 – 10 as this helps them see visually which ones they have counted already.
Once we’ve spent around 15 minutes working together the cards are then placed out so that they can use them again.
