This is a fun way for 1st graders to practice solving word problems in a unique way. Kids 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!
The number of words in this story have been reduced and simplified for our first grade friends. You can read together in groups, as a class or kids can read them individually.
This mystery includes these skills:
*time to the hour
*reading a bar graph
*add 3 1-digit numbers
*add to 10
*numbers and number words
*smallest to largest
*even and odd numbers
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 Halloween themed math mystery book as much as mine do! What the next mystery will bring?
