Grade 1 Math

In Grade 1, instructional time focuses on four critical areas: (1) developing understanding of addition, subtraction, and strategies for addition and subtraction within 20; (2) developing understanding of whole number relationships and place value, including grouping in tens and ones; (3) developing understanding of linear measurement and measuring lengths as iterating length units; and (4) reasoning about attributes of, and composing and decomposing geometric shapes. Math lessons all include kinesthetic aspects, including a combination of hands-on exploration, songs, movement, manipulatives, collaboration, math games, and/or art. Throughout the year students will engage in math through the thematic units and learn about number bonds, denomination of money, geometric symbols, measurement, and patterning.
1st Grade students will focus on:
  • Grouping, Addition, & Subtraction
  • Measurement & Data
  • Geometry
  • Mathematical Practices
