Valentine's Day

 Wow! Valentine's Day is right around the corner! Next week is conferences so I don't have school on Valentine's Day, so we will be celebrating on the 13th which just seems wrong! One of the things we will be doing is my newest product, Valentine's Day Math Centers. There are 5 centers and one whole group activity.

It includes measurement, graphing (pictographs, bar graphs and line plots), multiplication, subtraction and fractions. These are all things my students need some more review on!

This activity is working on measurement to the 1/4" and line plots. The students will measure the objects then place their data in a table. After that, they plot their line plot.

Also included is fractions on the number line. We have been working on this for awhile, but fractions are a major topic for third grade. In this activity the students have hearts with fractions on them that they have to find the matching number line.

There is also a subtraction game. My students are beginning to be proficient in this area, but I want to make sure this skill is solid.

Also included in the bundle is a multiplication match. Students will match the array with the multiplication fact and the area drawing.

Two data and graphing sheets are also included. Students will collect data about their friends' favorite candy, and create a bar graph. In addition, students will create a pictograph of colored candy using the candy of your choice. This page is available as a FREEBIE!! when you download the preview.

I plan on using these centers during my math rotations next week.
