First Grade
  • April: What is Grade 1 studying?


    ELA:

    Module 3: Birds’ Amazing Bodies

    Unit Summary: In this module, students build their literacy skills as they engage in an in-depth study of birds’ bodies. The module focuses on big ideas derived from the Next Generation Science Standards: Animals have physical features that help them survive; animals behave in ways that help them survive.

    Unit Tasks:

    • Informational Text Reading Assessment
    • Informational Writing: Informational Writing Assessment
    • Science Talk

     

    Eureka Math:

    Module 5: Identifying, Composing, and Partitioning Shapes

    Students will…

    • classify shapes based on defining attributes
    • find and name two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes
    • create composite shapes
    • name and count parts of a whole
    • partition shapes
    • construct a clock and recognize halves

     

    Common Core Learning Standards:

    1.MD.B.3 – Tell and write time in hours and half-hours using analog and digital clocks.

    1.G.A.1 - Distinguish between defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and three-sided) versus non-defining attributes (e.g., color, orientation, overall size); build and draw shapes to possess defining attributes.

    1.G.A.2 - Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape.

    1.G.A.3 - Partition circles and rectangles into two and four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halvesfourths, and quarters, and use the phrases half offourth of, and quarter of. Describe the whole as two of, or four of the shares. Understand for these examples that decomposing into more equal shares creates smaller shares.
