Below you will find a small sample of the no prep printables included in the Valentine’s Day Math and Literacy Activities 1st Grade Bundle:
Valentine’s Day Ten Frames
This activity is ideal for students that need to reinforce their knowledge of numbers 1 to 10. Students fill in the ten frame with the matching number of dots as the numeral in the heart.
Valentine’s Day Number Words
In this cute activity, students read the number word and color the matching numeral.
Valentine’s Day Ten Frames II
Teen numbers can be tricky as their names don’t follow the common rule and the concept of more than 10 can be difficult for some students to understand. In this worksheet, students start by filling in the ten frames to match the teen number in the heart. They can visually see the idea of 10 plus how much more for each teen number.
Spin and Color a Ten Frame
This activity reinforces knowledge of teen numbers in a fun and interactive way. Students spin a number and color the matching ten frame.
Spin and Build a Number
In this fun and engaging activity, students are provided with an interactive way to build teen numbers. Students spin a number and color the empty ten frame to match this number. Then, they complete the addition problem to build a teen number. The concept of ten plus more is shown with ten frames and with an addition fact.
Race to 100
Ten frames stacked on top of each other are used to show that 10 lots of tens make 100. Students spin a number and color the corresponding number of hearts in the ten frames. First player to get to 100 wins the race. This is a great way for students to count by 10s and 1s to 100.
Valentine’s Day Color by Addition
This activity extends students by having students complete addition problems with 3 addends. Students use 3 dice to create an addition problem and color the matching result in the picture. This activity is a great activity to use in math centers paired with math blocks or other math manipulatives.
Doubles True or False
Learning doubles facts is an important math strategy that can be used as an anchor for the near doubles facts and other addition strategies. In this activity, students color the doubles facts that are true. A number line is provided to support students in checking the answers.
Place value is a foundational skill for further mathematical learning. In this activity, students reinforce their knowledge of place value by decomposing numbers into tens and ones and showing their relationship to each other through an addition fact.
Number Bonds to 20
Number bonds help children understand how numbers work and to see the relationship between numbers. In this activity, students complete number bonds for numbers to 20. This activity is great for math centers paired with math manipulatives.
Valentine’s Day Syllables
An essential concept beginning readers have to understand is that words are divided into syllables or word parts. In this activity, students clap the syllables out for each Valentine’s Day object and sort it into the correct number of syllables.
Essential phonic skills are covered including blends with this activity. Children say the name of the object, color the matching blend, and then write the blend beneath to complete the word. The remaining part of the word without the blend is already provided for tracing to support children in their spelling skills.
Digraphs Sound & Write
In this phonics activity, children say the name of the object, identify and color the sounds, and then write the complete word.
Singular and Plural Nouns
Beginning grammar skills are covered with a variety of printables. In this activity, children sort and paste Valentine’s Day objects into singular and plural nouns.
Common and Proper Nouns
In this activity, students sort nouns into common and proper nouns by coloring hearts.
Valentine’s Day Contractions
Using the word bank, students write the correct contraction for each pair of words.
How to Make a Valentine
Procedural writing is an important skills for students to master. This activity supports students by providing pictures as prompts and the first word for each sentence.
