First Grade Math Curriculum and a FREEBIE

How do you feel about teaching math?  I have to be honest and say that it’s not my favorite subject to teach.  However, I think my problem is that I feel like I am constantly struggling to find ways to supplement our math curriculum while still keeping it fun and engaging.  A couple of months ago, I started planning and organizing what I would want out of a math curriculum for 1st graders.  I am actually really excited about teaching math now.

This 1st grade math curriculum includes whole group lessons, small group activities, games, intervention materials, digital resources, and much more.As of right now, I have two units completed and available in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.  Unit 1 is all about Number Recognition and Counting and Unit 2 is about Base Ten and Place Value.  Addition and Subtraction within 10 is coming next.

This 1st grade math curriculum includes whole group lessons, small group activities, games, intervention materials, digital resources, and much more.Each unit includes 10 lessons for instruction along with many supplemental activities.
Each of the 10 lessons include:
• Math Chat – Math Discussion Questions
• Brain Warm Up
• Whole Group Mini-Lesson
• Small Group Practice
• Take Away Ticket – Perfect for checking for understanding.
After 5 lessons, you will find:
• School-Home Connection
• Additional Practice Pages
• Spiral Review
• Intervention Materials
• Interactive Notebook Activity
Each unit also includes a Unit Assessment.

The Math Chats and Brain Warm Ups for each day are also in an included digital version that can be displayed on your classroom projector.

Since the two units I have available now are geared more towards the beginning of the school year, I wanted to share a FREEBIE with you that will eventually be available in a future math packet.

This FREEBIE is from the new First Grade Math Curriculum packets from Jodi Southard at Fun in First.These Add and Clip cards make a great independent center activity for your students.  Print them on colored cardstock or laminate for durability.  I used Astrobrights paper in Lunar Blue™ and Rocket Red™ for these cards, but you could use any of your favorite colors.

The students will add the equation.  Then, they will place a clothespin onto the correct answer.  If you want these to be self checking, place a small dot on the back where the correct answer would be.

Here are some more pictures from Unit 1 and Unit 2.  If you love the colors, this variety packet from Astrobrights is a great option.
