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!
- foam hearts, heart candy, or any heart shaped manipulative

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.
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!
