Math Series - Curriculum Associates

Unit 2 - Addition and Subtraction and Learning Facts to 10

This week in our math lessons, we will be discussing the equal sign = and its meaning in mathematics.

We continue this week with number partners for a given number - - all the various number combinations to reach a certain sum.

We will continue a review of doubles facts and doubles facts plus one.

We will relate our number partners we are learning to numbers bonds and fact families.

Our math studies always include counting, skip counting, numbers and number words, shapes and shape words, tally counting, and number lines as well as our addition and subtraction practice. We have also learned to compare and match sets to show how much more and how much less.

We are using our classroom Math Journals to practice completing missing numbers in number lines, writing numbers and number words, addition, subtraction, tally mark counting. We are also practicing number bonds and fact families in our Math Journals. We will add our number partner study to our Math Journal work.

We are first grade mathematicians!
