We’ve been hard at work with number order this winter. It’s easy to count numbers in complete order, but it’s a bit more of a challenge to figure when a number is missing. These free winter missing number clip cards for kindergarten are a great next step to working on numbers. They also work great for review with first graders (what we were using them for). They are part of the 31 Days of Free Printables, so once you download these you will want to take a look at the other great freebies in the series!
Jaida still has trouble with a few numbers from time to time, so going back and reviewing every now and then is very helpful for her. She knows how to read numbers up to 999, but occasionally the numbers 8 and 9 trip her up.
I’ve noticed that it’s more difficult to find fun activities for learning as kids get past preschool and kindergarten, but these worked very well for Jaida, who is in the 1st grade.

The prep is super easy, just print on card stock and/or laminate the clip cards for durability. Of course, I love laminating! Then, cut the cards apart and they are ready to be used!
Kids can mark the correct answer with their clothespin for some work on fine motor skills while they are working on their math skills.
To make them self-correcting you can draw a light colored dot on the back of the cards, so the kids can flip them over to check their work.
