WHAT'S INCLUDED?

  • Valentine's Day Error Analysis Game (Geometry & Classify Shapes)

Students look at each card and decide if the statement matches the shape. Then, students put a happy heart or a sad heart next to each one to show their thinking. An answer key is included.

  • Multi-Player Valentine's Day Game (Compare Fractions)

Each time a student answers a card correctly, the student then chooses a circle card randomly. The circle card tells whether to go forward or backward. The first person to make it to the finish line wins! Answer key included. Task cards practice comparing fractions.

  • Build a Valentine's Day Card (Multiplication and Division Word Problems)

Each time students answer a task card, they get to add a Valentine’s Day decoration to their “Valentine card” or take an item off another player’s mat. You never know who’s going to win based on this twist. All task cards include multiplication and division word problems. First one to have 10 decorations on their card wins.

  • Chocolate Strawberries Sort (Round to the Nearest 10 within 1000)

Students look at each chocolate strawberry. They use their rounding skills (to the nearest ten) to determine which chocolate box each strawberry belongs in.

  • 20 Valentine's Day Multiplication and Division Puzzles

Third graders put together the 10 multiplication puzzles OR 10 division puzzles. You can choose if you’d like students to practice one skill or both. Each puzzle reveals a different Valentine’s Day picture when put together. Total of 20 math fact puzzles are included.

  • Valentine's Day Whole Group Game: Multiplication / Division Facts Game to Play with the Whole Class!

There are 2 versions included so you can practice multiplication facts OR division facts (or mix them together and practice both!)

-Step 1: Cut puzzles into pieces. Scatter pieces all over your classroom.

-Step 2: Have students find the colored pieces that belong to their team. Once the team has found all of their colored pieces, they try to be the first team to finish putting their heart back together again.

  • Digital Hide and Seek Game for Valentine's Day

Have you ever wanted a FUN activity that is 100% editable and can be customized to any age level / any standard you are teaching? Do you need a game that you can use with the whole class OR just a few students? Something that can be used over and over again without becoming boring? Look no further! Every student I've ever encountered has LOVED the concept of hide-and-seek. In this DIGITAL hide and seek game, students are tasked with finding the hidden object by guessing answers to questions on the screen. In this version, all slides are Valentine-themed and are just right for any holiday season!

And the coolest part? It can work for ANY subject and ANY grade level! Every slide and every question can be edited however you'd like!

How to Play Hide and Seek:

  1. This game is played in PowerPoint. Drag the object on the left behind any picture on the screen so it is “hiding”. Repeat this on each page so all 10 objects are hidden.
  2. Put the game in “Slide Show” mode to play!
  3. Have students “seek” where the object is by calling on students to say answers to the questions on the screen. Click to see if their guess is right.
  4. When you click each picture, it’ll magically disappear to see if the student has “found” the object!
  5. Whichever student finds the hidden object gets to come to the front of the room and call on students to guess on the next slide!
  6. Use the blank version to create whatever skill practice you’d like—math facts, letter recognition, spelling words…the sky is the limit!

**You can also play this in Google Slides and use it digitally. The way to set it up works slightly differently so make sure to read the included directions. **

  • TEKS 2.6A: model, create, and describe contextual multiplication situations in which equivalent sets of concrete objects are joined
  • TEKS 2.6B: model, create, and describe contextual division situations in which a set of concrete objects is separated into equivalent sets

This aligns with 3rd Grade Texas TEKS:

  • TEKS 3.3E: solve problems involving partitioning an object or a set of objects among two or more recipients using pictorial representations of fractions with denominators of 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8
  • TEKS 3.3F: represent equivalent fractions with denominators of 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8 using a variety of objects and pictorial models, including number lines
  • TEKS 3.3G: explain that two fractions are equivalent if and only if they are both represented by the same point on the number line or represent the same portion of a same size whole for an area model
  • TEKS 3.3H: compare two fractions having the same numerator or denominator in problems by reasoning about their sizes and justifying the conclusion using symbols, words, objects, and pictorial models
  • TEKS 3.4A: solve with fluency one-step and two-step problems involving addition and subtraction within 1,000 using strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and the relationship between addition and subtraction
  • TEKS 3.4B: round to the nearest 10 or 100 or use compatible numbers to estimate solutions to addition and subtraction problems
  • TEKS 3.4D: determine the total number of objects when equally-sized groups of objects are combined or arranged in arrays up to 10 by 10
  • TEKS 3.4E: represent multiplication facts by using a variety of approaches such as repeated addition, equal-sized groups, arrays, area models, equal jumps on a number line, and skip counting
  • TEKS 3.4F: recall facts to multiply up to 10 by 10 with automaticity and recall the corresponding division facts
  • TEKS 3.4H: determine the number of objects in each group when a set of objects is partitioned into equal shares or a set of objects is shared equally
  • TEKS 3.4J: determine a quotient using the relationship between multiplication and division
  • TEKS 3.4K: solve one-step and two-step problems involving multiplication and division within 100 using strategies based on objects; pictorial models, including arrays, area models, and equal groups; properties of operations; or recall of facts
  • TEKS 3.5A: represent one- and two-step problems involving addition and subtraction of whole numbers to 1,000 using pictorial models, number lines, and equations
  • TEKS 3.5B: represent and solve one- and two-step multiplication and division problems within 100 using arrays, strip diagrams, and equations
  • TEKS 3.5D: determine the unknown whole number in a multiplication or division equation relating three whole numbers when the unknown is either a missing factor or product
  • TEKS 3.6B: use attributes to recognize rhombuses, parallelograms, trapezoids, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories
  • TEKS 3.6E: decompose two congruent two-dimensional figures into parts with equal areas and express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole and recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape

This aligns with 4th Grade Texas TEKS:

  • TEKS 4.3C: determine if two given fractions are equivalent using a variety of methods
  • TEKS 4.3D: compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators and represent the comparison using the symbols >, =, or <

Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5 × 7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a total number of objects can be expressed as 5 × 7.
Interpret whole-number quotients of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 56 ÷ 8 as the number of objects in each share when 56 objects are partitioned equally into 8 shares, or as a number of shares when 56 objects are partitioned into equal shares of 8 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a number of shares or a number of groups can be expressed as 56 ÷ 8.
Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Determine the unknown whole number in a multiplication or division equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 × ? = 48, 5 = __ ÷ 3, 6 × 6 = ?.
Understand division as an unknown-factor problem. For example, find 32 ÷ 8 by finding the number that makes 32 when multiplied by 8.
