Teen Number Rainbow Clip Cards

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.
