April 10th-April 21st- Conitnue Module 6

 

March 27th- Introduce Module 6: Place Value, Comparison, Addition and Subtraction to 100

In this final module of the Grade 1 curriculum, students bring together their learning from Module 1 through Module 5 to learn the most challenging Grade 1 standards and celebrate their progress. As the module opens, students grapple with comparative word problem types. Next, they extend their understanding of and skill with tens and ones to numbers to 100. Students also extend their learning from Module 4 to the numbers to 100 to add and subtract. At the start of the second half of Module 6, students are introduced to nickels and quarters, having already used pennies and dimes in the context of their work with numbers to 40 in Module 4. Students use their knowledge of tens and ones to explore decompositions of the values of coins. The module concludes with fun fluency festivities to celebrate a year's worth of learning.

March 20th- Continue Module 5

We will begin to build on students' knowledge of parts of circles to tell time.

March 13th- Continue Module 5

We will continue working in Module 5 with two- and three-  dimensional shapes.

March 6th - Begin Module 5

Grade 1 Module 5: Identifying, Composing, and Partitioning Shapes

In Module 5, students consider part–whole relationships through a geometric lens. The module opens with students identifying the defining parts, or attributes, of two- and three-dimensional shapes, building on their kindergarten experiences of sorting, analyzing, comparing, and creating various two- and three-dimensional shapes and objects. Students combine shapes to create a new whole: a composite shape. They also relate geometric figures to equal parts and name the parts as halves and fourths. The module closes with students applying their understanding of halves to tell time to the hour and half hour.

Week of Feb. 27th

We will finish Module 4 and have an End of Module Assessment over strategies to add double digit addends.

Week of Feb. 13th and Feb. 20th

We will continue Module 4 with a focus on strategies to add double digit addends.

Week of Feb. 6th-

We will continue Module 4 and focus on greater than, less than, and equal to and the corresponding symbols for each.

Week of Jan. 30th-

We will introduce Module 4.

Grade 1 Module 4: Place Value, Comparison, Addition and Subtraction to 40

Module 4 builds upon Module 2's work with place value within 20, now focusing on the role of place value in the addition and subtraction of numbers to 40.

Week of Jan. 2nd thru Jan. 23rd-

We will continue Module 3.

Grade 1 Module 3: Ordering and Comparing Length Measurements as Numbers

Module 3 begins by extending students’ kindergarten experiences with direct length comparison to indirect comparison whereby the length of one object is used to compare the lengths of two other objects.  Longer than and shorter than are taken to a new level of precision by introducing the idea of a length unit.  Students then explore the usefulness of measuring with similar units. The module closes with students representing and interpreting data.     

For the week of 12/5/2016, we will begin Module 3.

For the week of 11/28/16, we will complete the final lessons from our 1st Grade Module 2 Story of Units.  We will continue using the "Counting On" strategy and drawing pictures to solve addition and subtraction facts.

For the week of  11/07/2016, we will continue our lessons from 1st Grade Module 2 Story of Units.

Grade 1 Module 2:  Introduction to Place Value Through Addition and Subtraction Within 20

Module 2 serves as a bridge from students' prior work with problem solving within 10 to work within 100 as students begin to solve addition and subtraction problems involving teen numbers. Students go beyond the Level 2 strategies of counting on and counting back as they learn Level 3 strategies informally called "make ten" or "take from ten."

For the week of 10/24/2016, we will begin Module 2.  Module 2 builds on Module 1; however, the sums and differences increase to 20 instead of 10.

For the week of 10-03-16, we will continue the 1st grade Module 1 Story of Units.  This unit focuses on fluency (speed with accuracy) with additon and subtraction of numbers to 10.  We will use addition and subtraction to solve word problems.  Students will use number bonds to help them build this fluency. 

We will continue to explore and understand number bonds up to 10.

 

For the week of 8/15/2016 and 8/22/2016, we will continue our Story of Units module on number bonds and strategies to build our fluency with addition to 20.

 

 

Module 1

For the week of 08/8/2016, we will review math skills taught in kindergarten.  This will include understanding subitizing, five and ten groups, and number bonds.
