As we progress through the year, we are getting stronger with our number sense and really working on building our addition and subtraction skills. One way we work on these is through fun games in math workshop. My kids especially love fun, seasonal games, so I knew this Valentine addition game would be a hit!

Play the Game!
My kids love spinner games, and they are so easy to set up! Simply place the pencil inside the paperclip, give it a flick with your finger, and see where it lands!
For this game, we first spun the bear on the left, followed by the bear on the right. We then added the two numbers together to find the sum. There is a number line included, but sometimes it is also fun to have manipulatives out on the table for students to count with (candy hearts are super fun for this!)
Once we found the totals, we located a heart with the correct some and colored it in. Then, spin and add again!
Keep playing until all of the hearts have been colored. This game is great to play individually, or you could also have students use two different colors and play with a partner to see who colors in the most hearts!
