Thank you for downloading this Valentine's Candy Hearts Math Center! This resource was designed to help students with number sense, addition, and subtraction between 1-20. It addresses a number of Common Core Math Standards (see below) for grades K and 1st. This download is for single teacher use though additional licenses are available for purchase. Graphics provided by Graphics from the Pond and http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Atlteacher
This resource includes the following:
*Number mats 1-20
*Candy Hearts with number words
*Candy Hearts with picture (dice/dominos) representations of numbers
*244 Candy Hearts with either an addition or subtraction equations
This resource can be used in a number of ways. Students are to sort the hearts onto the number mat that corresponds with it. Each mat will have several matching hearts. To differentiate you can give students select mats and candy hearts to work on a particular skill i.e. addition. Mats can also be placed around the room and students dealt a number of and they scramble to place their hearts on the correct mat.
Common Core Standards Addressed:
CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.A.3 Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects).
CCSS.Math.Content.K.OA.A.1 Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.
CCSS.Math.Content.K.OA.A.5 Fluently add and subtract within 5.
CCSS.Math.Content.1.OA.C.6 Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 – 4 = 13 – 3 – 1 = 10 – 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 – 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
CCSS.Math.Content.1.OA.D.8 Determine the unknown whole number in an addition or subtraction equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 + ? = 11, 5 = _ – 3, 6 + 6 = _.
