Valentines Math FREEBIE: Decomposing 10

Valentine's Day is this week!!  To celebrate, I have a {FREE} heart-themed math activity set for you!  Just click here to download the file!  

How do these math games work?  You can play many ways:

1- Cut out colored hearts. Instruct students to match the heart pieces together that add up to 10, and then place the match on one of the blank hearts. Continue until all six blank hearts have been filled with pairs that add up to 10. Record the matches on the sheet titled “I can make 10!”

2- Make a file folder game. Cut out colored hearts. Glue one half of each heart to the inside of the file folder. Laminate the pieces and let students match the halves together that add up to 10.

3- Give students the blank hearts and let them write in numbers that add up to 10.

4- Cut out colored hearts and glue one half of each heart on top of a blank heart. Give students the blank heart sheet (that now has a colored heart glued on top of half of each blank heart), and let your students write in the correct number on the other half of the heart.

I may share at any of these parties!

Thanks, Erika! It's a kindergarten standard both in the Texas State Standards and the Common Core, so it seemed like a good idea. ; )
