What are we learning this week in First Grade?

Math

Students are going to be introduced to Addition. We will be using manipulatives such as counting rods and blocks to ease them into the topic. Their fingers are also always a great tool to use when doing their homework. This hands on activity will help them to visualize the numbers they are adding. Slowly I will ween them away from using their fingers and manipulatives and they will be able to do addition in their heads. I am very excited to introduce them to this fun, new topic.

Is your student struggling with this new topic?

Students can watch the video provided below to help them review what we learned in class.
