These math stories were created to integrate reading and math. It is often hard to find children's literature that doesn’t focus more on one subject or the other. Hopefully, these texts will help bridge the gap.
This pack contains one text called The text focuses on a boy cleaning his room. He begins to organize and count his sports card collection. All the texts are written on about a mid-second grade level. There are four math problems that accompany the text which focus on adding three-digits numbers. There are two versions of the problem sheet for differentiation. One has a defined workspace and the other is blank.
There are five MATH levels of the text:
•Level A- Adding Three-Digit Numbers with No Regrouping
•Level B- Adding Three-Digit Numbers with Regrouping in the Ones Place
•Level C- Adding Three-Digit Numbers with Regrouping in the Tens Place
•Level D- Adding Three-Digit Numbers with Regrouping in the Ones and Tens Place
•Level E- Adding Three-Digit Numbers (Mixed Practice)
To extend the text, there is also a reading graphic organizer for students to complete a written recount of the story. In addition, there is a sheet of four reading comprehension questions in which students have to find evidence in the text.
To save paper and create a “book,” print the cover page and the story front to back!
A separate projectable copy of the text with three additional math questions is included. Please note that the numbers in these texts are not the same as the student copies. However, all the words in the text are identical. The purpose of this projectable copy with additional questions is to allow for a teacher model prior to students working independently. There are also five levels of the text labeled A, B, C, D, and E.
