Welcome to First Grade Math!
This is our third year following the New York State Common Core Mathematics program. The first year was very challenging, yet rewarding. The students worked hard and made great strides. This year's first graders have the advantage of having had Common Core instruction in kindergarten. Some of the vocabulary and daily materials will be familiar to the students as we launch into lessons that will excite them and stretch their mathematical understanding.
In first grade the Common Core Mathematics consists of 6 Modules.
Module 1: Sums and Differences to 10
Module 2: Introduction to Place Value through Addition and Subtraction Within 20
Module 3: Ordering and Comparing Length Measurements as Numbers
Module 4: Place Value, Comparison, Addition andSubtraction to 40
Module 5: Identifying, Composing, and Partitioning Shapes
Module 6: Place Value, Comparison, Addition and Subtraction to 120
