What do kids learn in first grade?
Advancing from preschool and kindergarten playtime to first grade desk time is a significant transition for children who will now transfer the reading and writing skills they have been acquiring to the actual work of reading and writing and math. Math expectations at this level focus on a deeper understanding of addition and subtraction, including geometry, equation, time, and story problems, while reading instruction targets syllables, decoding, and features of sentences. To foster deeper comprehension and greater ability, access the supplementary material in this unit for your students. Based on first grade educational standards, individual and whole class activities that feature artistic graphics will strengthen academic skills. Examples include Take It Home Books, Scoot games, maps and mazes, spelling, critical thinking, holiday fun, and more. Incorporate exciting and effective no prep opportunities for learning in your classroom!
