Do you need a fun way for your students to practice the skills being taught within your classroom? How about a Valentine math activity or learning center perfect for the month of February? Try the simple game on this file.
There are two methods of play; solely dependent upon the amount of time you have available in preparation of this fun activity. One method involves game cards, where one side of a paper card has a practice problem, and the other side will have the correct answer. Students play by solving the problems that are face-up on a card, record their answers on a recording sheet, self-check the answer on the back, and if he or she is correct, they get to spin a paper-clip spinner and move down through the candy hearts.
The second method of play eliminates the use of the game cards, thus reducing the overall preparation time. Students use a single die to determine problems to solve on their recording sheets, independently self-check the answer with the corresponding answer key, and if he or she is correct, they get to spin a paper-clip spinner and move down through the candy hearts.
