This math mystery is a fun way for 2nd graders who are heading to 3rd grade, 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:
*Time to the 5 minutes
*characteristics of shapes
*adding 3 1-digit numbers
*creating,reading, and comparing with graphs
*counting dollars, quarters, pennies, nickels, and dimes
*adding 2-digit numbers
*measuring with inches and centimeters
*other ways to make fractions to 1/4
*place value with word and expanded form
*adding/subtracting 100 from a 3-digit number
*greater than and less than with 3-digit numbers
There are a total of 10 word problems included in this story. Some of them are multi-step problems as well.
I use these mysteries at my math stations during guided math. I am sure your kids will love this summer themed math mystery book as much as mine do! What the next mystery will bring?
