First Grade

  • In Grade 1, instructional time will focus on four critical areas: (1) developing understanding of addition, subtraction, and strategies for addition and subtraction within 20; (2) developing understanding of whole number relationships and place value, including grouping in tens and ones; (3) developing understanding of linear measurement and measuring lengths as iterating length units and (4) reasoning about attributes of and composing and decomposing geometric shapes.

    While the content learning goals describe the mathematics students should be able to understand and do, the first eight learning goals (The Standards for Mathematical Practice) describe how students should engage with these mathematical concepts and skills as they grow in mathematical maturity and expertise. Teachers will connect the mathematical practices to mathematical content in all mathematics instruction. These learning goals merit the most time, resources, innovation, and focus necessary to qualitatively improve the instruction, assessment, and student achievement in mathematics.
