Heart Addition Math Mat

Being that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I love to prepare my lessons by including a variety of heart-themed activities like this heart addition math mat.  It is an easy-prep, hands-on activity that my students love! I know yours will too!

The children get to practice adding 2 numbers while using the foam hearts as a visual representation of the equation.

I found these adorable foam hearts at my local dollar store.  But candy hearts, heart beads, or any other heart shaped manipulative works great too!

Students practice adding 2 numbers while using the heart manipulatives as a visual representation of the equation.

Supplies Needed

My students get especially excited for any opportunity to use dry erase markers so be sure to laminate this printable or simply slip it into a dry erase pocket sleeve for repeat use!

How to Play

Start by rolling two dice.

Using a dry erase marker, write the math equation in the squares on your math mat printable.

Students roll two dice and write the numbers rolled in the boxes on the heart recording sheet.

Build the equation with the heart manipulatives and solve!

I love to create unique ways for my students to learn while also having fun! With these heart addition math mats, they are counting, writing, and adding.  What a wonderful opportunity for learning!

    1. Hi Karen,

      At this time we do not have a subtraction version of this activity but we have lots of other subtraction activities/games you may be interested in below:

      A subtraction version is a great idea and I will send the suggestion over to our creative department so we can add it to our list of printables and resources that we want to create for The Kindergarten Connection community!
      Have a great weekend!
