Here are 11 8.5"x11" Valentine's Day-themed number recognition mats for a math center! The pictures in each box give you (and the kids) a "hint" about how to use it - and there is a directions page in the download - but here's a brief description:
Print and laminate 1 or more sets of these for your kids.
They will need 1 mat at a time, a dry erase marker, and candy hearts (or other heart manipulative).
"Write" box - trace the numbers (my kids say them out loud in a silly voice as they trace them).
"Count" box - count each set of hearts and determine which has the correct number. Circle that set.
"Erase" - Use a dry erase marker to color in the heart (color over the number like it's not there). Then, use a finger to erase the numeral in the heart.
"Make" - Use candy hearts to count out the correct amount and place them in the ten frame.
