Module 1

In this first module of Grade 1, students make significant progress toward fluency with addition and subtraction of numbers to 10. They are presented with opportunities designed to advance them from counting all to counting on. This leads many students to decomposing and composing total amounts. This module is an important foundational piece for our first grade mathematicians.

Module 2

In this module we will extend our work with addition and subtraction to the numbers 1- 20, and learn some new strategies along the way.

Module 3

In this module, students will use non-standard units to measure objects, and will compare and order objects by length. They will build conceptual understanding of the need for standard measurement units, beginning with centimeters.

Module 4

In this module, students will study, organize, and manipulate numbers within 40. They will compare number quantities, using the symbols for greater and less than (>, <). Students will work with adding and subtracting tens and will begin to add two-digit numbers.

Module 5

In this module, students will revisit their kindergarten work with geometric shapes. They will sort, analyze, compare, and create two and three-dimensional shapes, and put them together to create new shapes. They will also, as in their work with number bonds and addition and subtraction, examine the part-whole relationship through this new geometric lens.

Module 6

In this final module of the school year, students synthesize their learning from all the other modules, working with the most challenging Grade 1 content. In the first several lessons, students identify and solve various types of word problems. Next, they extend their skills with tens and ones to numbers to 120, both counting and performing addition and subtraction. Finally, they are introduced to nickels and quarters, having already worked with dimes and pennies. The module concludes with fun fluency activities to celebrate their year of mathematical learning.
