This is a cute story about a sum in math who wants to be first in the equation. It was created to help students understand that the sum can come first. For example, 10 = 5 + 5 is the same as 5 + 5 = 10. The students can relate to this story and have fun reading it while learning a challenging math concept at the same time!
When printing - select two pages per sheet, landscape format. This will make a nice, half sheet booklet. The students can even color it to make it their own.
