Create a few Valentine’s Day smiles with this solving one-step equations practice. Valentine themed answer messages spice up regular practice and make grading a snap!
The Holiday Fun:
Students solve 15 equations (out of 26) before receiving one of the 6 Valentine cards. Students use answers to decode the Valentine’s hidden message. I enjoy hand-selecting the recipient of the message, matching the message to the student’s personality. Since the Valentine is addressed “To My Wonderful Teacher,” students are essentially sending you, the teacher, the Valentine when they turn in their solving one-step equations practice. “Oh what thoughtful students I have!”
Practice solving one-step equations with whole number parts and solutions. Find four versions of this practice. One has 26 equations using only addition and subtraction. Another 26 equation practice uses only multiplication and division. Note that the fraction bar is used for division. The two other versions mix the first two sets for practice with all operations. Easily differentiate and meet the needs of a mixed ability class by using multiple versions simultaneously.
