Within this product, you will find a series of Drop & Record addition, subtraction, and fact family game/recording sheets for the month of February. Each game format has a few different variations to better meet the needs of each individual classroom and child. I use these in my own classroom as a super engaging AND differentiated math center game! My Kindergarten colleague uses some of these pages in her room as well.

**Game Pages for Fact Family Drop & Record [10, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, &, __ (you fill in a number of your choice)]
-Select the materials you would like the student to use
-Decide on the game board based on the number of heart candies they will be using/the number you want them to work with (choices include 10, 5, or you fill in the blank).
-Decide if you want them to play the addition game, the subtraction game, or the fact family game
-If you selected addition or subtraction, rather than fact family, decide if you want the student to use a recording sheet and pencil alongside the drop & record game sheet, or if you would like to put the drop & record game sheet inside a sheet protector/laminate in to make it a play & erase game
-If you selected addition rather than subtraction, decide if you would like students to have the sum and the end or the start of the equation
-If you selected the fact family game(s), decide which sum(s) you’d like the student to use and laminate or place in a sheet protector for a play & erase game
-Give the student the correct number of heart candies (or substitute heart candies for any other small item). On Valentine’s Day I use candies, but for the entire month, I use small cubes so they can play these games as math center games.
-Student holds that number of hearts/items in their hands, drops them carefully like they would dice, then writes a number sentence based on the number of total candies, the number of candies inside the hear, and the number of candies outside of the heart. Student repeats again and again to build number sense and fluency.
However you use these Candy Heart Drop and Record Games, I genuinely hope that you find these materials helpful in your classroom!
Happy teaching & happy learning.
