These self-correcting clip cards are great for scaffolded practice as they offer multiple choice answers to help narrow down the possible answer. Throwing in the clothespins to clip the correct answer adds another level of fun, plus some fine motor practice.

How to Use Camping Telling Time Clip Cards

Make learning to read a clock and tell time to the half hour more fun with these FREE camping themed clip cards. Not only is this freebie great practice for children in first grade, but it also offers bonus fine motor practice as students open and close clothespins.

The beauty of this activity is that it is math practice and fine motor practice all in one. Have students read the camping activity on the left side of the card and the time that activity starts. Then, they will look at the three clocks on the right and decide which time matches the time on the left.

Once they've picked the correct clock, they grab a clothespin, squeeze it open (hello bonus fine motor practice) and clip it on that clock. You can come around and check answers quickly this way. Or students could self check and do this activity independently.

One of the things I LOVE about these clip cards, is that students can check their answers on their own. This makes it a great independent activity. Obviously, you might need to talk about not peeking at the answer and making sure that your students pick the clock and clip it on before they ever flip it over.

If they have selected the correct answer, there will be a yellow dot behind the clothespin. If they got the wrong answer, they can see what the correct answer is supposed to be and figure out where they went wrong.
