PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Common Core is making us think harder about how we are going to reach all of our students and make them master thinkers. This is a complete unit for math first grade to get you going for the 1st five weeks of school. This unit focuses a lot on number sense and a solid introduction to addition and subtraction. No longer will our kids be struggling through math. This unit offers meaningful, purposeful teaching for each day. Students will be engaged in deep thinking and discussion while building their math foundation. It is full of fun and meaningful math activities and games. Each day builds on the day before and requires students to think, think, think!
Thinking Included:
- Lesson Plan Map out and a lesson plan for each day
- Activities and Instructions for each day (5 weeks)
- Performance Assessments and Rubrics
- Homework
- Letter to parents
- Class made books
and lots more....
Standards included in this unit:
1.OA.1
1.OA.3
1.OA.6
1.NBT.1
1.NBT.3
This unit was carefully thought-out and carefully put together. It strives for mastery of number sense which will give students a firm foundation for the rest of the Core.

This is the first of five units that make an entire curriculum based around the Common Core standards.

On  October 1, 2013Adrian Maynor (TpT Seller) said:
This is my first year in 1st grade and our current county adoption is not very good. I have been flying blind on teaching to the common core for the last two years. These units are a LIFE SAVER! I use the as the basis of my lessons and them modify (add to or take away) based on my kiddos and their needs. You did a great job of making suggestions within the plans on how to adapt games and activities to meet the needs of various learners. Thank you!!!

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  August 10, 2013,  Buyer asked:
Can this be used in addition to your math journal bundle? Or how do you incorporate either/or?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 10, 2013Elizabeth Konecni answered:
Yes! Everything that I sell I use everyday in my own first grade classroom. The math journal is what we use as morning work. The kids come into the room in the mornings and immediately get started with math journal. The work with a buddy on M, Wed. and Fri. and on their own on Tues. & Thurs. They also use math tools to support their thinking. Then I use the units to teach from in the afternoon. Right before I begin teaching math we check their journal work from the morning as a big group sitting in a circle. The journal is a great foundation for their thinking and connecting math ideas and building new understandings. I hope this answers your question. :) Lizzie
n/a
On  August 7, 2013,  Buyer asked:
It says to use index cards and bingo markers to create the dot cards. I tried that and the markers bleed through the index cards. The children will see the dots while trying to play memory. Have you tried something else other than stickers?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 8, 2013Elizabeth Konecni answered:
I was just talking about this the other day with a group of teachers it's funny you mention it.:) For once in game rules it's ok that the child kind of gets away with cheating or so they think they are.:) our goal is for them to subitize the number (easily recognize it) and if they can configure the dots and know the number it's completely fine for them to see through the card. We are just wanting them to know the formation and amount. :) I have not had the bleed through problem, our markers always work fine. Stickers are a great idea too. I hope your year is awesome!

On  July 19, 2013,  Heather B. asked:
Are the anchour chart pictures on your website included in this package?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 19, 2013Elizabeth Konecni answered:
Yes, each unit contains anchor charts. Units 1 & 2 have the most anchor charts. It contains all of the wording and pics. All you have to do is cut and glue to a poster. :)
On  March 5, 2013Buford Girl (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi Elizabeth...your other common core units tell the strands of the common core that are covered in the unit on your description...do you have those strands listed somewhere for this unit?

Thank you!
Bonnie
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 5, 2013Elizabeth Konecni answered:
Hey Bonnie, I don't have them for the first unit. I will be revamping unit 1 this summer and adding the standards. Most of the standards for that unit come from Number and Operations, and NBT.

On  March 4, 2013,  Buyer asked:
Do you have units for the whole year?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 4, 2013Elizabeth Konecni answered:
Yes, I have units 1 through 4 complete and all sold seperately. They all pick up where the last one left off. They are all listed in my store. Have you tried the journals yet? They are an awesome companion with the units. My class starts the day with journal and we check at the start of math. Happy math teaching!
