As Valentine’s Day approaches, we love being ready with some fun, themed learning activities! After the success of our counting bear addition cards, I just knew my kids would be thrilled to work on addition to 10 with these candy heart addition cards as well!
Candy Heart Addition Cards (below)
Candy conversation hearts (optional, but fun!)
I printed out the cards and laminated them to keep them sturdy. We will be using them multiple times during math workshop and want them to last!
After cutting the cards apart, I put them, along with some candy hearts, in our math workshop bins.
***Tips – you can have “community candy hearts” that kids share but do not eat. or you can give each child their own ziploc bag of the hearts to use for math, and maybe eat one or two each day, etc. Both are fun options, so do what works best for you!
My students match up the real candy hearts to the pictures (great for one to one correspondence) and then they add the total number of hearts together, using Expo markers to fill in the equation! Anything with markers is always a hit – they love them!
