As a new special education teacher, it takes a lot of time to collect and prep classroom activities for students at multiple levels. You want to make sure you have enough on hand to easily differentiate for students, and that you can quickly grab to minimize downtime. This new resource line was designed to help with this exact issue!
Who has time to cut, laminate and Velcro dozens of work tasks before the school year starts? Not me! Easy Prep Clip Cards are a quick task that can be used with multiple students, and the best part is that they don't take nearly as much time to prep as task boxes, adapted books or file folder activities. Just laminate and cut them in half and you are ready to go.

Once you've got your Easy Prep Clip Cards prepped and ready to use, here are some fun ways to use them in the classroom.
Clothespins or Paper Clips
Using clothespins or even paper clips is great for fine motor development. Plus, you most likely have paper clips on hand, and clothespins are inexpensive and easy to find.
Magnetic Chips & Magnet Wand
I love finding ways to make school work more engaging, and I think using magnetic chips and a magnet wand does just that! Students can set a chip on each of the target pictures and then clear it with the magnet wand after checking with a teacher.
Craft Pom Poms
If you're feeling brave, bust out the playdough containers and let students smash playdough balls onto their Easy Prep Clip Cards to show their answers.
I can't stay away from the Target Dollar Spot mini erasers, and this is a perfect way to put them to use!
You can use Bingo daubers on laminated paper and they will wipe off easily. These are another fun way to respond with Easy Prep Clip Cards.
If you want to take this low-prep activity to an even easier level, just print the cards and have students use a hole punch to record their answers. No laminating required!
