In the beginning of the year, 4th and 5th grade students at St. Andrew the Apostle in NKC completed this exercise. Students practiced their addition and subtraction skills.

This is the basic foundation for starting any mathematics. Students practiced place value, regrouping, and their facts. After solving the sums and differences, students had to answer the riddle on the top of the page.

They placed a letter that corresponded to an answer below. The answer is a funny response. Enjoy!
