Elementary kids LOVE Valentine's Day! This craftivity aims to get your kids engaged and interested in place value while they work to do a hands-on craft activity that integrates arts. The finished product turns out so cute and makes great displays for bulletin boards, outside hallways, or student portfolios!
Included in this packet are all of the following:
-Printables kids will need to use for their posters ("My heart and arrow are made of... " with an equation + a break down of the place value of the number...) I've included 2 different versions: one with a colored ruffle border color AND a more simple version with a black and white border.
-An example of a finished product to show your students
-Signs to hang (in a fun font!) if you chose to make a display with student finished work. I've included a 1 page sign and also larger printed words for a bigger bulletin board.
Aligns with Common Core for first grade math:
Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems...

Understand that the two digits of a two-digit number represent amounts of tens and ones.
10 can be thought of as a bundle of ten ones — called a "ten."
The numbers from 11 to 19 are composed of a ten and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones.
The numbers 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 refer to one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine tens (and 0 ones).
