This is a great activity to practice abbreviations. In this activity students match the heart with the abbreviation to the word on the heart outline. You can play it as a memory game with matching or you can make this activity self checking by writing the word on the back of the heart. Print on card stock, laminate for durability and place at a literacy center. Great Valentine's Day design for a literacy center! A great for a challenge for your high 1st graders or grade level 2nd graders. This comes with a worksheet for additional practice or assessment where students cut and paste the abbreviation next to the word. Enjoy!
