I love work tasks with clothes pins. They build fine motor skills, are super durable, and can be utilized within academic tasks. And you can usually find clothes pins at the dollar store. If it’s sold at the dollar store – I’m in. Let’s be real. I can’t be going to Lakeshore Learning for every work activity. Only in my dream world.
I have a bunch of tasks with clothes pins already in my class:
Check out these new ideas! I am obsessed! These are perfect for the busy little hands in my classroom that need to be engaged but need something more challenging that just matching.
Fill in the Missing Letter: Students find the coordinating letter that is missing in the alphabet line.
Initial Letter Matching: Students fill in the missing initial letter in these words.
My other ideas are to make one task with missing numbers in number line, patterning, and missing number in math equations. Any other awesome uses for clothes pins?
