Valentine’s Day Math Activities for Kindergarten

Number comparison activities are a great way to help students see, visualize, and represent numbers in multiple ways. They’re also important for learning how to use and apply numbers. Incorporating comparative activities into your number sense lesson plans is a great way to help students learn this important skill.

This set of Valentine’s Day comparing numbers to 10 task card set puts their comparison skills to the test. Students are provided two numbers between zero and ten to compare. Then students will be asked to compare the two numbers using <, >, or =. 

Through this activity, students will show they can count objects up to ten, and compare numbers up to ten using <, >, and =.

🆘 Support Struggling Students

Help students who need support by inviting them to reference posters or anchor charts from previous lessons. This activity can also be completed in a small group.
