First Grade
What my student should learn in
CA Common Core Math Standards
Four Key Areas of Focus
Developing understanding of whole number relationships and place value
Developing Strategies for addition and subtraction within 0-20
Develop an understanding of linear measurement
Reasoning about attributes of geometric shapes
Represent and Solve Word Problems
Use addition and subtraction with 20 to solve word problems
Demonstrate addition and subtraction with objects
Add up to three whole numbers whose sum does not exceed 20
Discover Relationships between addition and subtraction
Apply properties of operations to add and subtract (commutative property and associative property)
Translate patterns of counting into addition patterns (Counting by 2 is adding 2)
See subtraction as an unknown addend problem
Addition and Subtraction Equations
Understand the meaning of the equal sign
Determine if equations involving addition and subtraction are true or false
Solve problems such as 5 + ? = 11 and explain
Concepts to be Mastered
Keep Counting
Show fluency in counting to 120
Read and write numbers up to 120
Given any number less than 120, be able to produce the next number
Place Value
Know that the two digits in a number represent groups on tens and ones
The numbers 10,20,30,40... consist of 1,2,3,4... groups of tens and 0 ones.
Compare two digit numbers using <,>, =
Addition and Subtraction with Place Value
Add within 100 including a 2 digit number with a 1 digit number and a two digit number with a multiple of 10
Find 10 more or 10 less than any two digit number without counting
Model subtracting 10 from multiples of 10 in the range of 10-90
Measure Lengths
Order three objects by length
Express the length of an object in a whole number of units
Understand that units of length do not overlap or have gaps
Tell and Write Time
Tell and write time in hours
Tell and write time in half hours
Tell and write time on both analog and digital clocks
Represent and Interpret Data
Ask and answer questions about the total number of data points on a graph or chart
Answer "How many?" are in a given category.
Tell how many more or less are in one category than another
Reason about Shapes
Distinguish between defining and non-defining attributes of a shape.
Build and draw shapes to represent defining attributes
Composite Shapes
Combine 2 two-dimensional shapes to create a composite shape
Combine 2 three-dimensional objects to create a composite shape
Find and identify new shapes within the composite shape
Splitting Shapes
Cut circles and squares into two and four equal shares
Understand the meaning of the terms: halves, fourths, quarters
Represent that two halves or four quarters come together to make a whole
