Chocolate Heart Shape Matching
Sort the chocolate hearts by shape on this mat. Try printing several copies of the chocolate shapes to increase engagement.
Candy Heart Number Mats
These large numbers have many uses! Try using as counting mats by inviting children to add the same number of manipulatives to the mats, or use to trace/color, or as dough mats.
Candy Heart Color Matching
For this activity I have included two levels. One mat has a heart in each color for children to match color to color. The other mat has white hearts to invite children to match up the color words.
Candy Heart Patterning Strips
Practice identifying and extending patterns with these heart patterning strips. After mastering these strips challenge children to create their own pattern. Grab a partner and take turns placing hearts to create a pattern together.
Conversation Hearts Uppercase & Lowercase Letter
Flip a heart, identify the uppercase letter, then find and mark the matching lowercase letter on the mat.
Work on early literacy schools by learning to follow a line from left to right with this Valentine's Day themed page.
Heart Tally Flip and Match Game
Young children are learning that numbers can be represented in many different ways! With this activity children are learning to count up tallies, identify the total, then find the matching numeral.
I've included two levels of play for this activity. Print the mat with numerals or written number word depending on developmental level.
Rolling Roses Game
This roll and count game is fun to do independently or with a partner.
Roll the playing cube then identify the number rolled or count up the roses and add the same number to the mat.
Work on number recognition and ordering while putting together this heart puzzle.
Heart Count and Clip Cards
Count up these colorful hearts and determine the total on each card. Then use clothespins (great for fine motor development) to clip the matching number at the bottom of the card.
CVC Word Building
CVC words are great for young children to practice as they are simple and children can build based on the sounds they hear. Try engaging in this activity along with your preschooler to support them at this advanced literacy skill.
Play Dough Mats
Dough mats are such a fun way to work on motor development! These mats also support shape recognition and counting skills. These could also be used with a dry erase marker after laminating or slipping into a page protector.
Shape Clip Cards
Sending a Valentine is a fun activity to try during this theme! These Valentines come in a variety of shapes. Identify each and then clip the same shape at the bottom of the card.
Key to my Heart Color Match
Find the right key to unlock each heart! Match up the colored keys to the same color lock.
Cookie Number Sorting
This activity is a fun way to practice identifying numbers in a variety of ways. Each mat shows the number in numeral and written number form. Find and sort the ten frame, tallies, and number hearts to the correct mat.
Practice sorting by size with these hearts in different sizes.
This activity is a great to put out in your math center throughout the theme.
