PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This math mystery is a fun way for 2nd graders to practice doing a variety of word problems in a unique way. Kids just start reading at the beginning of the book, solve the problems, and go where the book tells them to go! If they get the wrong answer, they will have a 'stopper' that will tell them to go back to where they were working, and TRY AGAIN!

This mystery includes these skills:
*Adding money
*Time to the nearest 5 minutes
*Repeated addition
*Adding 2-digit numbers
*Naming 3-D shapes (cube)
*Matching fraction with a picture
*Simple multiplication/repeated addition-using pictures
*Elapsed time to 5 minutes
There are a total of 10 word problems included in this story.

I use these mysteries at my math stations during guided math. I am sure your kids will love this New Year/winter themed math mystery book as much as mine do! What the next mystery will bring?

Thanks!
Hilary
