First grade is full of exciting new things to learn!
In first grade, children build on the skills and knowledge they acquired in kindergarten. They learn to read on their grade level and master basic algebraic operations within 100.
So let’s have a look at some of the main standards taught in grade 1.
First grade outline of math, reading, and writing skills
In first grade math, children expand their number sense and ability to read, write, and work with numbers beyond the first ten.
They will count and write numbers up to 120. And also learn more about place value of two-digit numbers, an important skill in solving addition and subtraction problems. Children will also use their understanding of the number composition to compare two-digit numbers.
They learn to add and subtract within 20 while demonstrating fluency in addition facts to 10. Later in the year, first graders also work on adding numbers within the first 100.
First graders also grow their measurement skills by comparing the lengths of two objects. They will learn to tell time, recognize coins and learn more about 2D and 3D shapes.
English and Language arts
In first grade, children build learn another set of sight words and learn to decode simple words even if they can’t sound them out. They learn to read short books but also work with text and comprehension.
First graders are able to write all the letters of the alphabet in both, upper and lower cases. They capitalize the first letter in a sentence and understand ending punctuation in a sentence (e..g question mark).
They practice simple words spelling and learn about digraphs – two letters making one sound such as ch, sh, th, etc.
Read with and to your children even when they can do it on their own. The more they read the better they get!
