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.
Weekly Spelling Schedule:
 Monday  Write each word 3 times each.
 Tuesday  Write sentences for words 15.
 Wednesday  Write sentences for words 610.
 Thursday  Write the words in ABC order.
 Friday  Make a Word Pyramid for each word: Write the spelling word, adding one letter at a time to create a pyramid. Start with one letter on top then progress to two, three, and so on until the word is spelled down like a pyramid. Here is an example for the word about: about
about
a
ab
abo
abou
about
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 every night in math workbook.
 Homework will vary between all first grade classes.
 Daily reading practice on RAZ Kids.
