**ALL 9 UNITS INCLUDED!**

Let’s dive into the curriculum and take an in-depth look at Unit 1! Get ready to make MATH FUN with hands-on centers and practices that will get kids EXCITED about learning math!

## HOW ARE THE UNITS COVERED?

Each unit will offer **two components **to help make the math units meaningful and engaging for whole group, small group or individual lessons. This curriculum gives the teacher flexibility and freedom to rearrange the units to fit the needs of his/her students. Since there are so many practice pages and centers in each unit, the teacher can use many of the pages and centers as a spiral review as the year progresses. The more challenging activities would be best suited for this type of approach.

## HOW TO TEACH THE UNITS

The grade level standards for each practice page and center are clearly indicated on the **First Grade Math Standards Sheet**. Therefore, you don’t have to guess as to which standard is being covered. You can KNOW for sure that **ALL** the standards are being covered. This type of resource makes it easy for the teacher or homeschooler to supplement their current math curriculum or implement these units as new curriculum.

Below, you can see how each page corresponds with the grade level standards for first grade. Once you cover the specific pages for a standard with the NO PREP practice pages, you can now refer to the standards page for the centers. In contrast to a scripted word-for-word lesson plan, this math curriculum allows for flexibility, giving the teacher control of the scope and sequence.

## IT’S** EASY** TO USE AND RIGHT ON TARGET TO MEET AND MASTER ALL GRADE LEVEL STANDARDS!

## COMPONENT NUMBER 1

**NO PREP Practice Pages-** We all know that kids need a lot of practice to help master math concepts and to help them retain the knowledge. So I’ve made sure that each First Grade Math Unit will have a variety of fun **NO PREP **practice/worksheet pages for students to practice, practice, practice! These NO PREP practice pages allow students to master math concepts through **cutting and pasting**, **coloring**, **dice games **and **more**! Best of all, you can refer back to the First Grade Math Standards page and see which standard each page covers! Furthermore, you can connect these pages to a center that covers the SAME standard!

## COMPONENT NUMBER 2

**Math Centers-** Each unit will have a variety of math centers or stations to help students practice and apply skills and strategies taught within the math unit. These math centers are purposeful and will help to make each math concept more concrete. Math centers or stations increase student motivation by:

*****Providing meaningful learning opportunities

*****Fostering independence

*****Allowing for differentiation

***Best of all…**they make learning math **FUN!**

*******NOTE:** ALL math centers are also available in **black and white.** You can print the centers in black and white on colored paper to save on colored ink while still keeping it fun.

## A QUICK OVERVIEW OF THE MATH CENTERS

This comprehensive and full First Grade math curriculum ensures that **all grade level math standards are being covered **in a variety of ways! The units allow for critical thinking, use of manipulatives, fun and engaging practice pages, and interactive centers that are sure to keep your students wanting more math!

## ORGANIZING THE FIRST GRADE MATH CENTERS

I know that teachers who are organized are more likely to be successful! In my experience, being organized makes us feel more relaxed and able to enjoy the teaching process. It also helps the day go more smoothly. So today I want to show you an easy solution to organizing the First Grade Math Units.

I store all of the units inside of sterilite containers. There are 29 math centers in this box. It is a tight squeeze, but they all fit. This is a great option if you are short on space. Costco also sells beautiful containers that are a bit larger.

I like to place each center in a plastic gallon-sized bag.

Each center has a card that explains how to play each game or complete each activity. At the same time, I’ve numbered the centers for easy access and reference for each grade-level standard. Each unit will have its own binder and math center bin.

## ORGANIZING THE NO PREP PRACTICE PAGES

I print and put all of the NO PREP Practice Pages into a dedicated binder. Each unit will have its own binder. This allows me to pull the pages that I need to copy and print. When I am finished, I place them back into the binder. You can also use a dry erase maker with many of the pages, making this a great option if you are limited in the number of copies you are allowed to make.

## There are 74 NO PREP Practice pages included in this unit!

**Let’s take a look at a few of the practice pages IN ACTION…**

## QUICK REFERENCE GUIDE:

Each unit has a quick reference guide, highlighting the FIRST GRADE standards that are covered in the unit.

One of my absolute **FAVORITE** things about this First Grade Math Curriculum is that **EVERY** grade level standard is covered in the bundle! I also tell you exactly which standard each page covers in the NO PREP Binder!

Each center fulfills a specific grade level standard also. Furthermore, this curriculum allows you to connect the practice pages with the centers that correspond to the standard you are working on! Consequently, you can seamlessly implement this curriculum into ANY current curriculum or use it as a stand-alone curriculum!

If you have ANY questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at themoffattgirls@gmail.com .

I hope your kids LOVE this math curriculum, and I know it will help make you into a super star teacher!

I recently purchased the 1st grade math centers. I am really excited to get started using them. My question to you is… Where do you purchase the manipulatives used for your centers? Such as the various types of spinners shown.

amoffatt says

Hi Mitzi!

I purchase most of the manipulatives from Amazon. Here is a link for the suction cup spinners: Click Here. Let me know if there are any other manipulatives you’d like a link to. I hope that helps!

I’m just looking to purchase math centers and games/ activities for homeschool this year. Any way I can just purchase the activities without lessons and worksheets?
