Valentines Unit!

I am really excited to share this unit with you because I truly think that it is my best one yet! It's 48 pages full of fun printable activities and recording sheets that you can do with your students, or set up as a center! There is a great mix of math & literacy activities & I would LOVE your feedback on this unit since I am so excited about it.


The activities included in this unit are:

Roll and Color Hearts: print out the sheet to make the dice.  Print and photocopy recording sheet. Students roll the dice and color the graph. Students stop when one color reaches the top! (pg. 3-4)

Alphabet Valentines: print out the valentine letters with capitals. Hide a heart cut out (not included) behind a letter inside of a pocket  chart or on the floor. Students identify letters to find the heart. (pg. 5-8)

Valentine’s Counting: Look at the number on the mailbox. Give that number of valentine’s to the mailbox. Either use candy hearts or print enough of the small  valentine’s on page 12  (pg. 8- 12)

Missing Letter Hearts: Look at the strip of hearts. Find the letter that is missing. Write the missing letter on the recording sheet. (pg. 13-19)

Heart Sorting Mat: Print out as many mats as you need. Give students a box of candy hearts to sort out. Student analyze their data and complete the worksheet. (pg. 20-21)

Math Clips: Count the pictures on each card. Look at the numbers and put a clothespin on the correct number. There is a recording sheet included as well. (pg. 22- 27)

Letter Bingo: Print out the number of bingo cards you need. (5 different cards included) print the calling cards (pg 38-39). If students have the letter that is called they place a bingo marker on the card. Suggestions for markers include: pretend coins, heart erasers, candy hearts, chocolate chips, etc. Black & white version of bingo cards are also included. (pg. 28- 39)

Math Problem Match Up: Read the math problem on the bear’s flag. Find the picture card that matches. Students fill in their answers on the recording sheet. (pg. 40- 48) 
 
I will be teaming up with a couple other bloggers (shh! it's a secret right now) next week to offer this unit up in a giveaway. Just in case you can't wait for the giveaway you can purchase this unit at my TpT store or TN store. Just click one of the *new* buttons below!
