The PREVIEW does not show every page included. You will receive a complete set of red background hearts for every fact family (sums to 20) and a complete set of white background hearts for every fact family (sums to 20) so that you can choose which to print saving on ink with the white background option.
To use: Print on cardstock (two color options to save on ink), laminate, cut out, put in a Ziploc bag with some classroom counters to help students solve each addition problem., and place in a math center.
You can print out one fact family at a time as students learn them or the complete set all at once.
After preparing the center, students will use classroom counters or a number line in the classroom to help them solve the addition problems (sums to 20). Students will find the matching heart halves to correctly solve each problem. Teachers can also make this a self checking center by writing the correct answer to each problem on the back of the heart. The even number problems have two hearts with the sum of 20 so that each number family can be printed as a complete set.
I hope your students enjoy these addition heart puzzles!
I am a kindergarten teacher with 22 years of teaching experience! I received my Doctor of Education degree in Teacher Leadership from Walden University in June 2010. The title of my doctoral study is "Writing Conferences in Kindergarten: Using Feedback to Enhance Student Writing." My passion is teaching writing to my students and providing feedback for their writing experiences. I love teaching kindergarten. It is amazing to see students enter the classroom not even knowing how to hold a pencil and watching them become readers and writers by the end of the year. I love teaching in small groups and rotating student groups with literacy centers and math centers.
