November: What is Grade 1 studying?
ELA:
Module 1: Tools and Work
Module Summary: In this module, students build their literacy and citizenship skills as they engage in a study of tools and work. Students first learn about how tools help to do a job. They then extend their understanding of what it takes to do a job when they learn how the “habits of character” of initiative, collaboration, perseverance, and responsibility help them do work.
Unit Tasks:

Students will write an informational piece on creating a magnificent thing for the classroom.
Module 2: A Study of the Sun, Moon, and Stars
Module Summary: In this module, students build their literacy and science skills as they engage in a study of the sun, moon, and stars. The module begins with a story about a young boy named Elvin who is curious about the sun, moon, and stars. Elvin wants to learn more about the sun, moon, and stars and shares his wonderings and artifacts he receives along his journey with the firstgrade students.
Unit Tasks:

Students study the sun, moon, and stars through various narrative texts and begin to understand how and why the sun, moon, and stars inspire authors. Students respond to texts through roleplay and written response.
Eureka Math:

Common Core Learning Standards:
1. OA.A.1  Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
1.OA.A.2  Solve word problems that call for addition of three whole numbers whose sum is less than or equal to 20, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
1.OA.B.3  Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract.3 Examples: If 8 + 3 = 11 is known, then 3 + 8 = 11 is also known. (Commutative property of addition.) To add 2 + 6 + 4, the second two numbers can be added to make a ten, so 2 + 6 + 4 = 2 + 10 = 12. (Associative property of addition.)
1.OA.B.4  Understand subtraction as an unknownaddend problem. For example, subtract 10  8 by finding the number that makes 10 when added to 8.
1.OA.C.5  Relate counting to addition and subtraction (e.g., by counting on 2 to add 2).
1.OA.C.6  Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 – 4 = 13 – 3 – 1 = 10 – 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 – 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
1.OA.D.7  Understand the meaning of the equal sign, and determine if equations involving addition and subtraction are true or false. For example, which of the following equations are true and which are false? 6 = 6, 7 = 8  1, 5 + 2 = 2 + 5, 4 + 1 = 5 + 2.
1.OA.D.8  Determine the unknown whole number in an addition or subtraction equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 + ? = 11, 5 = _  3, 6 + 6 = _.
1.NBT.B.2  Understand that the two digits of a twodigit number represent amounts of tens and ones.


First Grade, what to expect?
Homework is a crucial part of your child's active learning process and essential to their academic progress. Please make sure that all homework is completed daily.
Remember to read with your child every night for at least 20 minutes and talk with your child about the story. Math homework will be given almost every night on Zearn to match the daily lesson in school.
 Read every night.
 Respond to books using examples from the text.
