NEW Valentine's Day Math Fun Pack♥

I was so inspired by my friend Meagan after she made the most ADORABLE Valentine's Day Literacy Pack (see the previous post to check out our giveaway!).  So I decided to make a Valentine's Day Math Pack!!!  :)

I think it turned out pretty cute!  I included a WIDE variety of math concepts because not every single teacher out there is covering the same things that we are right now!  We are in the middle of place value, but here is the low-down on what is included:

{1} Place Value Matching Game
{2} Place Value I Have, Who Has? Game
{3} Time to the Hour & Half Hour Matching Game
{4} Subtraction Facts Coloring Page
{5} Heart Addition Sort Game
{6} Bump Addition Game
{7} Number Order Sequence Game
{8} Odd & Even Connect Four Game
{9} Fact Family Card Game
{10} Money Matching Game

Each activity includes a record sheet for students to write their answers on.

Each activity is also included in both COLOR and LINE ART forms to make your printing options easier!

There are 50 pages total!  Phew...I am really glad I'm done working on it.  I was going crazy after looking at so many pink & red hearts, stripes, & polka dots!!!  Ahhh!

Well it's available at my TPT store for $5.50!  Buy it now so you can print it all out on cardstock OR get it ready to laminate on Monday before Valentine's Day!  :)

Thanks friends!
