This is a first grade common core mathematics center for Valentine’s Day.
There are five common core centers included in this bundle.
Center 1: True Love Greater Than, Less Than, Equal To
SWBAT: Compare two digit numbers using <, >, and = symbols.
Center 2: Ten More, Ten Less
SWBAT: Mentally find ten more or ten less than a number without having to count and explain the reasoning used.
Center 3: Sweetly Subtracting Tens
SWBAT: Subtract multiples of ten from multiples of ten (numbers less than 100, differences greater than or equal to zero) and explain the reasoning used.
Center 4: Valentine Values
SWBAT: Decompose two digit numbers as the sum of tens and ones for numbers less than 100.
Center 5: 2-Digit Addition (without regrouping)
SWBAT: Add 2 digit numbers to 1 digit or 2 digit numbers without regrouping.
These activities can be reproduced for whole group or small group center rotations. They include center materials (except for base ten blocks) as well as student accountability sheets. Discussions after each activity or with other students can extend students’ understanding of these standards!
Also, the fun valentine theme will excite students to learn more about these math concepts!
