Math Focus of the Week

For the week of

During first grade, students will participate in a math program called Story of Units.  The Story of Units consists of 6 modules.  You may click on the link below to view each

For the week of 12/4/2017 we will continue Module 2 Story of Units.

# 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."

We are learning on becoming fluent in addition and subtraction up to 20.

Students should be able to solve subtration problems by using a number line or counting on.

The week of Nov. 27th- We will continue our Module 2 unit.

For the week of 11/6/2017 we will begin 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."

# October 23rd- We will begin Module 2 .

For the week of 10/16/2017, we will begin wrapping up module 1.  Moduel 1 focused on sums and differences to 10.

For the week of 10/2/2017, 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.  Students will use number bonds to help them build this fluency.

For the week of 08/14/2016, we will review math skills taught in kindergarten.This will include understanding subitizing, five and ten groups, and number bonds.

For the week of 8/8/2016, we will review kindergarten skills that should be mastered prior to 1st grade.  One of the main skills is subitizing. Subitizing helps students develop number sense.  This aids in counting, counting on, place value, addition & subtraction.

We are learning to become fluent in addition and subtraction up to 20.

Students should be able to solve subtration problems by using a number line or counting on

More or Less and Representing Numbers 1-10

If you have ten pencils and I have three, can you represent both numbers? Which number is more and which is less?

During Workstations: more, less, representing numbers 1-10, ten frames, and subitizing

Modules 1-6

During Workstations:  computers, ipads, smartboard, and teacher directed centers.  There are addition games and number bond games to practice the skills we are working on.

Here is a list of many of the websites that we use.  They can definitely work on these at home!

For the week of 4/17/2017, we will continue Module 6. This is the final module for the 1st grade curriculum.  It brings together students' learnings from Modules 1 though 5 in order for them to learn the most challenging 1st grade standards.

*We will begin our focus with place value with numbers up to 100.

For the week of 4/10/2017, we will begin Module 6. This is the final module for the 1st grade curriculum.  It brings together students' learnings from Modules 1 though 5 in order for them to learn the most challenging 1st grade standards.

*We will begin our focus with place value with numbers up to 100.

# April 10th - Begin Module 6

Grade 1 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 - 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

For the week of 3/27/2017, we will complete module 5.  Students will also complete the end of module assessment.  Module 5 covered identifying, composing and partitioning shapes. It ends with students using thier knowledge of halves to tell time to the hour and half hour.

# Jan. 23, 2017 Begin 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.  Students study, organize, and manipulate numbers within 40.  They compare quantities and begin using the symbols for greater than (>) and less than (<).  Addition and subtraction of tens is another focus of this module as is the use of familiar strategies to add two-digit and single-digit numbers within 40.  Near the end of the module, the focus moves to new ways to represent larger quantities and adding like place value units as students add two-digit numbers.

# 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.

# Week of Dec. 5th, we will begin Module 3.
