I LOVE integrating math & literacy and this little packet does just that! Back to School Mystery Messages reinforce addition, subtraction, 10 more/less, greatest/least, & missing number as well as writing, reading, & illustrating :)

For each mystery message included, students will solve math problems, match the answers to a letter bank, and then use those letters to solve the mystery message. Once the mystery message is solved, students will rewrite it using capital letters, spacing, correct spelling, punctuation, and good handwriting! Students will illustrate the mystery messages, too!

20 different mystery messages {and the answer keys for each} are included in this packet. Messages include:

*School is cool
*Have a great day
*Follow the rules
*Be kind to others
*Clean up the room
*Keep hands to self
*Share with others
*Listen carefully
*Use inside voices
*Help your friends
*Mind your manners
*Raise your hand
*Do your best
*Take your time
*We stick together
*We are family
*Work hard
*Be polite
*Be respectful
*You are a smartie
