This file was created to give my students visual perception of the word problems in Pet Store Math. I found myself spending a lot of time explaining what the different pets were in Binkytown Pets. My students do not have a lot of background knowledge for pets, other than strays, so this photo book has been a lifesaver for them. It has increased their understanding of "the story" in each multi-step word problem presented in the ORIGINAL PET STORE MATH file. The word problems are NOT included in this file, but be sure to check it out if you are looking for fun ways for students to practice Level 2 and Level 3 Multi-Step word problems appropriate for 3rd Grade Common Core.
My students and I are SUPER EXCITED about this new book to help them understand their word problems. I hope you find it just as exciting. It will take a lot of practice before my students reach mastery, but this is certainly a fun way to practice with real-life situations. I researched prices to make sure to keep it real world.
I have also created many other Common Core Practice and Assessment files that I use daily in my own classroom. As I work through the Common Core, I will continue to add new assessments and activities that correlate with each standard. Be sure to check out my Q1 and Q2 Study Guides - Such Great Resources for Students and Parents, and my Associative, Commutative, and Distributive Property files, just a few TEACHER FAVORITES.
If you purchase this activity, please leave feedback. I am always interested in what fellow educators think of my activities and assessments for students. I teach third grade math and this assessment was made for immediate classroom use with my own students (laminating optional, but recommended). I hope you also find it very beneficial with the new Common Core Standards.
Thanks for checking out this assessment file. Be sure to check out the other games, charts, Ultimate Teacher Planners, and files I have created, while you are here. I have a few FREEBIES, too :)
