## More Than Just Conversation Hearts

By the time Valentine's Day rolls around our students and kiddos are pretty sugared up with tempting sweets marketed specifically to our sweet tooth. That's why, as a teacher, I like to celebrate holidays with "get to" type activities.

CBN worksheets are more than just conversation hearts... these worksheets are legitness! Also, they are cute + colorful + engaging!

## Valentine's Day Math Multiplication Color-by-Numbers

For the Valentine's Day math multiplication color-by-numbers, students are asked to find the product, Then, they find the product in a range of numbers to identify the correct color.

Why do I ask students to find the product and then find it in a range of numbers?

The simple answer is that I want to promote good mental number sense and arithmetic strategies. I have students solve the multiplication fact sentence and THEN find that product in a range. Instead of just solving the same fact for one color over and over. For example; you won't see 7 x 4 and 4 x 7 for one color.
