Here’s a Valentines Day math game that will give your K-1 students lots of practice adding and subtracting by counting up and counting back on the number line.

When your students read a card from the set of 135 addition and subtraction clue cards, they follow the directions and "hug a (love!) bug" by using a marker to make an X on their own number line. The first player to have five Xs in a row wins the game.

For differentiation, two kinds of number lines are included: with "go up" and "go back" arrows for support, and without arrows.

Extend this activity with the Four-in-a-Row game that's also included.

Keep the learning active when you use the themed large number cards (1-15). Your students will love building a number line on the floor and adding and subtracting by hopping along the line!

Assess your students with the cut-and-glue activity. An answer key for the activity is provided.

Game assembly is simple: print on cardstock, cut apart, and laminate for durability. There’s even a label for your storage container! This set will be an ideal addition to your February math centers or math tubs.
