30 Frame Valentine Math

In math, we are learning to count and write numbers 21-30.  There is a strategy where you use "10 frames" to model numbers.  Since we are counting up to 30, there are three sets of 10 frames.  
I created a work mat where the students could flip through and count out the same number of kisses.  I used this project during center time.

After we worked with the manipulative, we used this same concept to make a craft.  I made each student a mat with 20 kisses already on the paper, and they had to color them in to make them look like kisses.

Then, they could add between 1-10 more kisses that I cut out of construction paper.  They counted the total number of kisses and I wrote it on their paper.

Here is the finished product!


  1. This activity looks like so much fun! Especially if you get to eat the Hershey Kisses at the end! :)

    Thank you so much for my wonderful gift! I love the cork board and stickers. I appreciate that you gave me something so thoughtful and useful! I had so much fun buying for my secret Valentine. I can't wait until the girls do this again! What a great experience! Your handwriting is beautiful, too! :) Thank you again for the gift!
