Valentine’s Day is one of those holidays that is tricky for teachers. It involves candy and treats and lots of excited students. I don’t remember a single year that did not leave me exhausted by the end of the Valentine’s Day party. If your Valentine’s Day in the classroom is anything like mine, I hope this post helps! To channel my students’ excitement for the holiday, we do a lot of Valentine’s Day themed activities and this post will share several free Valentine’s Day digital activities that you can use!
Free Valentine’s Day Equivalent Fraction Digital Math Activity
We are typically knee deep in fractions in February so this Valentine’s Day freebie is a great review of equivalent fractions (which it seems my students always could benefit from).
To complete this activity, the students choose a “card”. They drag and drop the card to the heart that shows an equivalent fraction. The students will need to work in “Edit” mode to be able to drag and drop.

Free Valentine’s Day Digital Idiom Practice
Another fun skill to review during Valentine’s Day is idioms. There are so many idioms that have to do with “hearts” which makes these perfect for an engaging review lesson with a holiday touch.
This Valentine’s Day idiom digital activity includes three digital Google Slides to practice and review idioms. The students will need to be in “Edit” mode to type in the text boxes.

Free Sweethearts Digital Activities
One of my favorite activities is to use Sweethearts (or another brand of candy hearts) to practice different math and literacy skills, and I have digital versions for you!
These activities/questions were originally created for use with actual Sweetheart candies that you give the students. The students would use the candy to complete the tasks/questions. The digital activities have digital candy and boxes for the students to use.
For the digital candy hearts boxes, the students move the “box” to reveal the candy hearts inside. They then use those candy hearts to complete the activities on the slide.
For each activity or version, there are 5 different candy boxes (labeled A-D). You can allow students to choose the candy box they want, choose one to assign all of the students, or assign different candy boxes to different groups.
Math Sweethearts Activities
Version 1 – Determine the fractional amount of each color.
Version 2 – Determine the fractional amount of each color AND answer a multiplication/repeated addition question.
Version 3 – Determine the fractional amount of each color (more candy hearts than Version 1).
Version 4 – Determine the fractional amount of each color (and simplify the fraction if needed).
Version 5 – Determine the fractional amount of each color (and simplify the fraction if needed), answer a multiplication word problem, and a division problem (with the remainder written as a fraction)
Note: The different versions repeat the candy boxes so only choose the version that works best to assign your students or groups of students. Don’t assign more than one version to the same student(s). But you can assign all of the slides within that one version.
Literacy Sweetheart Activities
Sweethearts Writing – The students read the words and phrases written on the hearts. They choose ten of the words/phrases to use to write a story.
Sweethearts Sentences- The students read the words and phrases written on the hearts. They choose five of the words/phrases to use in unique sentences.
