Valentine Math Puzzles

How much fun would it be to practice math with puzzles? 🙂

I love making new activities to help kids understand and practice math. Here’s a fun way to sharpen those early number sense skills. These puzzles can be easily differentiated. There is a simple puzzle with numeral to object match and a second one with simple addition equations.

They are so easy and simple to use! I used a file folder to paste them in and this will make a great activity for repeated use. You can however store them any which way you see fit.

There are black and white versions of these along with coloured versions (which you could laminate, use and re-use). Students will cut the picture boxes out, identify the numeral on each picture card and then glue it onto the matching numeral on the box at the bottom.

Math Cut and Paste Activities

Below you can see that the puzzle is scrambled up and once the kids count the love hearts, they then need to find the corresponding numeral, then cut and paste it in the correct box and so on and so forth until they complete the full puzzle to reveal the mystery picture.

After they complete it all – the puzzle is revealed! Another puzzle is included but with addition equations for further practice. The same picture will be revealed so maybe hand this out to another group.

A black and white copy have also been included to use these in simple cut and paste math activities. You could print them out and have the kids cut and paste their individual answers or you could laminate them and put them into file folders along with the puzzle pieces.

Use these as Playdough Math Mats!

Another way you could use these mats is to include play dough! Have the kids build ‘dough balls’ to match the numeral on the puzzle piece as they complete their puzzle.
