Valentine’s Day Math Activities With a FREEBIE

Can you believe that Valentine’s Day is right around the corner?! That means that January is practically OVER… and all the teachers said AMEN! To celebrate the new month, I wanted to share a Valentine’s Day math game that can keep your kiddos engaged during the season of ALL THE CANDY.

Spin it to Win it is an easy-to-prep game that can basically be played with any math skill. Let’s take a look…

Valentine Math Game Spin

About Spin it to Win it!

On the heart there are two spinners. Students spin twice to get their two numbers. Then students will add, subtract, multiply, or divide (based on what you are focusing on in class… you decide!).

Supplies Used –> Dry Erase Pockets and Transparent Spinners

After both partners have solved their equations, the partner with the highest answer gets a tally mark.

How to Create the Game

The wonderful thing about this game is that YOU get to type in your numbers. You can do single digits for facts, numbers for regrouping, decimals for addition… whatever you’d like!

And if you aren’t up to typing, that’s okay! You can print out the blank version and write on the spinner as well. I love things like this because you can really make it work for any grade level and skill. It’s very similar to THESE editable math games.

Solve to Create a Love-Bug

But wait, there’s more! You are probably tired of hearing me talk about our Solve to Create packs, but I love this one oh so much. Students solve six word problems to create their love-bug. As students solve a word problem correctly, they gain a piece of their love-bug.

Just like with the math game, the word problems are editable so that you can type in word problems to fit your grade level and skills. It’s an engaging way to get ready for a test, review word problems, and tie in that holiday fun. You can find that HERE!
