I've Got 5 Dollars!
It’s never too early for students to start mastering algebraic skills. They are important building blocks for competency in math. Critical concepts dealing with operations and simple algebraic methods are explored, including addition and subtraction techniques, simple word problems, and decomposing numbers. Helpful images engage readers, and accessible text makes each skill easy for them to understand. Adding and subtracting within 5 is made enjoyable for readers through a narrative dealing with money. This volume, which adheres to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, is written to reflect standard K.OA.A.5. This book should be paired with "Maggie's Money" (9781477719589) from the InfoMax Math Readers Program to provide the alternative point of view on the same topic.
