No matter the age, students look forward to Valentine’s Day! Valentine math activities are great for celebrating and learning. For instance, some students love to buy small presents, such as candy and stuffed animals for their friends. Others love to make personalized cards. Regardless of how students like to celebrate, Valentine’s Day is still a big deal! Thus, it is essential to embed symbols and elements of the celebration into the classroom. One of my favorite ways to do this is Valentine’s Math because it incorporates content, the holiday, and technology. Ultimately, students feel more excited than ever to solve math problems when they have themed resources like Valentine’s Math.
Students will design art in this digital math activity by multiplying, dividing, adding, and subtracting decimals. There is one pixel art per operation for upper elementary students to practice these skills. For example, students will multiply, add, and subtract decimal by decimal. For division, students will practice whole number by decimal and decimal by decimal. As students complete each problem, they will watch part of the picture appear. Thus, this resource is also self-checking!
Sometimes, students are stronger at adding and subtracting decimals. Therefore, teachers may not need the whole bundle. Thankfully, there is another option! In this resource, students focus only on multiplying and dividing decimals. As above, each pixel art is self-correcting and has no prep!
Every student has different needs. Hence, Valentine’s Math bundle is broken down into smaller products. In this resource, students focus on adding and subtracting decimals. Each pixel art problem contains 2-4 digits, so students will have a variety of problems to solve.
Thankfully, the resource self-checks, so students will have instant feedback on how they are doing.
