Common Core is making us think harder and smarter about the way we teach math. The text books just don't give the deep hands on thinking we're looking for in the classroom. This is the 2nd unit of 5 and each unit builds off of the one before. In this unit includes math standards for first grade:
Students will work hands on with:
-addition and subtraction
-plus 1 and 2
- a deep understanding of what it means to count by 5 and 10
-adding 3 numbers
All of these standards are presented with a lesson plan for each day of a 6 week unit. In the daily plan you will find: standard covered, teach point, materials, mini-lesson scripted, student work and the share at the end. All mini lessons are written for a deep understanding by your students. Then the students will do activities (included) to deepen their understanding of the standard.
It is jam packed full of exciting hands on fun. Your students will be counting on 0 with the old lady who swallowed a fly, slapping 2 more, singing a rap, fishing for doubles, making domino doubles books, catching a cookie thief, and so much more. This unit was written to produce thinkers and problems solvers.
