 Math in Focus Grade 1 Chapter 1: Numbers to 10 Concepts: Children use countable objects to develop the association between the physical representation of the number, the number symbol, and the number word.   ( 1 = one) Besides counting the objects in a set, and crating a set with a given number of objects, children also differentiate between numbers of objects in sets a skill that forms a basis for number comparison. (3 is greater than 2 or 4 is more than 3) Vocabulary Words : Numbers: zero, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, same (equal to), more, fewer, and pattern(a sequence that is repeated) Web Resources Count to 10 Practice: Balloon Pop Bees and Honey Count the Bananas Number Bingo Numerical Order New Duck Shoot Counting Objects Fun Kids Online Math Games Counting with Topmarks Count and Order Gingerbread Men Bananas for Lunch Put the Feathers on the Bird Count Us In Counting Number Word Memory 1-6 Carnival Countdown Caterpillar Ordering Ordering Higher and Lower Fun to Learn Numbers Hungry Spider 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 I Caught a Fish Alive Count Us In Flying Girl Greater Than and Less Than: Counting Caterpillar Comparing Numbers Counting Fish More or Less Compare Numbers Comparing Numbers to 10 Before and After Dive for Treasure Chapter 2: Number Bonds Concepts: Number bonds can be used to show parts and whole. (For example, 1 and 2 make 3, so 1, 2, and 3 make a number bond.) This part-whole analysis forms the basis for the concept of adding two numbers to get another number (addition 1 + 2 = 3) Vocabulary Words : part, whole, number bond Web Resources Number Bonds AmblesidePrimary Save the Whale Ladybud Number Bond Make 10 Game Make 10 Shootout Alien Pairs to 10 Make 10 Quiz Math Lines 10 Can You Make 10?
