Wheel Clip Cards
Wheel clip cards have more options that the normal clip cards you might be used to. Learners will have to choose between more options making this activity a bit tougher than normal clip cards. There can also be more than one option, so learners will have to realize that and be able to select all the correct answers.
For this reason, I would recommend using these only once the learner is familiar with the concept and needs further practice. Using these to introduce the topic to the learner might be overwhelming and might result in confusion towards the learner.
Five Senses Wheel Clip Cards
These wheel clip cards are so much fun. I simply love how clip cards can be used both to train those fine motor skills (clipping clothespins is hard work!) and at the same time practice whatever concept they need to work on.
Materials for Preparation:
- Wooden clothespin (these are colored)
- Wooden clothespin
- Laminator (highly recommended)
- Laminating sheets
Using the printable:
There are a total of 5 wheels in this printable, one for each of the following senses.
Each wheel has a total of 8 options of which 4 of them are correct. The other 4 are not the correct answer for the clip cards.
Start off with one of the senses. Starting off with taste might be a good starting point. From the pictures ask your learners which of the things are they most likely to use their sense of taste.
This should be relatively easier since they can identify the things that they can eat and what each one tastes like. Lemon is sour, pretzels are salty, ice-cream and chocolate are sweet. They can clip the correct options.
For the other sense, get the children to discuss about which is the most likely sense they would use for the item and clip those that match the one in the center. There should be 4 correct options for each of the five sense clip cards.
Five Senses Clip Cards
You can also make this a self-checking activity. Just put a dot on the back of the correct parts of the clip cards. If the learner has clipped the dot then the answer is correct, if not ask them to try it again, or discuss why they chose that answer.
This packet can be used to strengthen fine motor skills, explore during morning work or used as supplemental math centers. The clip cards are skill-based, they are not thematic, so they can be used anytime during the year. The centers are best used once printed on cardstock and/or laminated. You can choose to implement these centers in an independent way or use with small-groups.
