Grab the Candy Game: Valentine's Day Version

This game was designed as a Valentine's Day version of the original Grab the Candy Game.  Students place valentine heart candy on the grid, then toss dice, form an ordered pair, and remove a candy, if there is one in that space.

Students will practice forming ordered pairs, learning to name the horizontal then the vertical number or letter, an important skill in coordinate graphing.  The PDF document includes two versions:  the letter-number version pictured to the right where students name the space using a letter and number, e.g. B2.  The document also includes the traditional board where hearts are placed on the intersection of two lines and students use traditional ordered pairs.
