This math mystery is a fun way for 3rd 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:
*telling time/elapsed time with am and pm
*expanded form from word form
*measurement with conversions (feet and yards)
*multiplication and addition (2 step problems)
*patterns in numbers
*measurement to 1/4-not starting at 0
*graphing with 1 object representing 3
*multi-step problems with numbers and number words
There are a total of 10 word problems included in this story.
I use these mysteries at my math stations during guided math. I know some of my friends let the kids take them home to work with their families.
I am sure your kids will love this Valentine themed math mystery book as much as mine do! What the next mystery will bring?
