Product Description
Keep the work academic for Grandparents Day! Have students cut out the puzzle and solve it by putting it all together. Then have them glue the heart on a piece of construction paper to use as a Grandparents Day gift!

The Valentine's Day Math Centers Division Heart Puzzles make it quick and easy for teachers to provide hands on activities that meet the needs of all students!

Let your students practice their division facts with these fun Heart Shaped Puzzles. They are perfect for Valentine's Day! Each of the three puzzles will have students match 36 different division problems with problems from 1÷1 to 144÷12.

This will help address Common Core State Standards 3.OA.C.7

These puzzles are meant to be somewhat of a challenge. Students will have to keep in mind the shape of the heart. The ten middle pieces will be the most challenging. Tell students to rotate them around until they fit. This is where their critical thinking skills will come into play!

Want even more puzzles like these? Check out this multiplication set, this addition set, or this subtraction set!

Preparation and Storage: You will need to print off the number of copies you need. (I recommend printing them on cardstock and laminating them.) I have used these as individual work, partner work, and small group work. They also work well for students who finish early or for use during center time. Cut the puzzles out and put them into plastic baggies for students’ use. I put each set in its own plastic baggie. Then I put all of these baggies and one original sheet in a manila envelope with the name of the activity on the front. This way I have the answer key and all materials readily available.

Directions to Play: Give students the cut-up puzzle sheet. Tell them they need to put the heart puzzle back together. The first time you have the students complete one of these. You can also give them the hint (because I have found some do not figure this out!) that the heart needs to be fully formed when they are done.

Correcting Student Work: To easily check a student’s completed work, keep an original copy of the puzzle sheet they are working on. This way you can immediately check to see if the pictures or numbers are in the correct order or not.

These Valentine's Day Multiplication Heart Puzzles are great for centers, review, early and fast finishers, enrichment, GATE (gifted and talented education), and critical thinking skills. Students with special needs also do well with these once they understand the concept. Any student that needs a lesson in perseverance will benefit from these puzzles. With this fun game format your students will stay engaged while practicing necessary skills!

Just print and quickly cut on the lines and you have instant Valentine's Day learning centers that make skill practice fun and engaging.

These puzzles also work great as a homemade, academic gift! Your students can cut out the puzzle, solve it, then glue it on a piece of construction paper. It's the perfect heart card for Mother's Day, Father's Day, Grandparents Day, or anytime someone is needing a little love! {Want to see one in action? Click here!
