Teen numbers can be a tricky concept for young learners.  These Teen Number Rainbow Clip Cards will help your students see the group of ten and the extra ones.  It's a fun, hands-on way to practice with teen numbers.

To prepare this activity, I first printed the clip cards on cardstock for durability.  I also recommend running the cards through the laminator.

Then I used my paper trimmer to cut out the clip cards.  There are ten clip cards altogether to practice with numbers 11-20.  

I grabbed some rainbow clips that I picked up at Walmart and a small container for holding the clips.  

We were ready for some Teen Number Rainbow Clip Card fun!

To begin, my students first picked a clip card.  This student picked a clip card with a group of ten on one cloud and two extra ones on the other cloud.  The student recognized that 10 and 2 more is 12.

The student took a clip and clipped the number 12 on the card.  

The student then picked another card.  The student recognized that this card has a group of ten on one cloud and eight extra ones on the other cloud.  

The student used a clip to clip the number 18 on the card.  

Students repeated this same process until all cards had been clipped. 

This is a great activity to do with a small group of students who may need some extra support with teen numbers.  It is also a great addition to a math station so that students can practice with teen numbers.

We love Valentine's Day in Kindergarten!  I'm always looking for a fun way to have my students decorate their Valentine's Day bags, but also I also like integrating an academic piece into the decorating.  This year I put together something for my students to glue on their bags, count, and write about.  They LOVED it and their bags turned out so cute!  

To begin, students first were able to label their bag with their name.  I found the bags at Michaels. 

Then they cut out how many of each picture they wanted on their bag.  They glued the pictures on their bag and colored them.  

Students then used a chart with the images to help them write about how many of each picture they had on their bag.

They were able to use sight words to help them write how many of each picture they had on their bag.  I love integrating a math and writing activity together. 

My students really enjoyed this and it was an academic way to decorate Valentine bags!  You could also have students compare their pictures.  For example, they could say, "I have a greater number of hearts than cupcakes."  or "I have less roses than bears."  They could also compare their pictures with a friend's bag.  Lots of fun math ideas for these bags!
