Grade 1 - Year at a Glance
The following overview of the year is a suggested plan for Grade 1 mathematics taking into consideration introducing significant foundational concepts in the first half of the year so there is time for spacing learning experiences over the year as well as balancing each term with number concepts alongside other areas of math.
|Number concepts to 20 (ways to make ten, building understanding of teen numbers as ten and some more, counting by 2s and 5s)|
|Addition and Subtraction to 10 (introduced multiple meanings of both addition and subtraction through modelling with concrete materials and stories; add on, combine, removal, comparing, finding the difference, counting all; introduce symbolic equation notation)|
|Communicating and Representing curricular competencies|
|Concrete graphs using one-to-one correspondence (graphing data about self and class, interests, events with Unifix cube towers or loose parts)|
|Likelihood of familiar life events (compare whether something is more or less likely to happen)|
|Repeating patterns with multiple elements and attributes (use AB notation, identify pattern unit, describe pattern rule)|
