### Description

This valentines-themed partner activity, for first and second grade math, reinforces understanding of base ten, trading ten ones for one ten, and comparing two digit numbers.

This resource also includes additional recording sheets with expanded form, rounding to the nearest ten, and counting by tens off a decade number.

A highlighted hundred chart is provided as support for counting by tens off a decade number.

A timer and a 1-6 die are needed for this activity.

For easier preparation, use base ten blocks or strings of hearts cut apart into tens and ones. These are sold as necklaces or garlands in craft stores.

This activity is perfect as an independent math station or as an intervention or resource activity. Many students benefit from experiencing the concept of ten in different forms multiple times.

Valentines in My Mailbox received a cosmetic makeover in January 2020.

This resource was crafted by Judy, a teacher with a master’s degree and more than 35 years of teaching experience.

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Given a two-digit number, mentally find 10 more or 10 less than the number, without having to count; explain the reasoning used.
Compare two two-digit numbers based on meanings of the tens and ones digits, recording the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, and <.
10 can be thought of as a bundle of ten ones - called a “ten.”
