You'd never guess just by looking at her. But that one kid in your class? The one with the summer birthday? Turns out she won a surfing contest a few years back. Using a surfboard made of toast.

There's nothing kids love more than solving mysteries that involve them. Secret Lives
includes two sheets of mixed addition/subtraction WITH regrouping (each with a different hidden message), differentiated to cater to a wider scope of learners' needs. Each page also includes its own Decoder Sheet, detailing the letter that corresponds with each sum or difference. Simply find the solutions, then use the decoder to reveal the message (and the truth
about one of your students!). Answer keys for each worksheet are included.
