Talk to Me Sweetheart!!! Conversation Heart Activities

 Every Valentine's, without fail, those little candy conversation hearts show up in the boocoodles! I don't really like to eat them.  They remind me too much of cough medicine.   I have found lots of fun ways to use them in the classroom though!

Spread "Sum" Love
Students use the addition workmat to solve the addition sentence and record on the recording sheet.
Students count out the number of hearts shown on each ten frame card and fill in the ten frame with that number.

Students count how many letters are on each heart and graph the hearts in the column with that number.

Students use these cut out hearts as counting mats and place the correct number of candy hearts on each one.

Students use candy hearts to measure how each paper heart and record the number of hearts it takes on the recording sheet. 

Students can sort the conversation hearts by color onto the sorting mat.  There is also one with a white heart instead of blue.  It will depend on which brand of hearts you get as to which one you need.

Students estimate how many candy hearts they think it will take to fill up the heart on the paper.  They write their estimate and then use the hearts to see how many it actually takes.
All of these activities and more can be found in my newest packet:  Talk to Me Sweetheart!  Conversation Heart Activities
