]]>I am so THRILLED to finally be able to launch the brand new First Grade Math Made Fun Curriculum! This curriculum is designed to make math **FUN, hands-on, **and** engaging** for first grade students! It can be used to supplement your current math curriculum, or it can take the place of your old *boring box curriculum*. Whether you are a classroom teacher or a homeschooling parent, you can feel **CONFIDENT** that this curriculum covers **ALL** grade level standards! No “fluff” or boring practice here! The Math Made FUN curriculum is **PACKED** with games, centers and practice pages that are going to revolutionize your teaching experience! There are multiple opportunities for your students to practice math concepts, demonstrate success and master **EVERY** grade level standard! Teach with confidence, knowing that your students are learning and mastering the math skills they need for first grade!

**There are a total of 9 Units that will be included in the First Grade Math Made Fun Curriculum**

*****Addition

*****Subtraction

*****Place Value

*****Geometry and Fractions

*****Money

*****Telling Time

*****Graphs and Data

*****Measurement

**ALL 9 UNITS INCLUDED!**

Let’s dive into the curriculum and take an in-depth look at Unit 1! Get ready to make MATH FUN with hands-on centers and practices that will get kids EXCITED about learning math!

Each unit will offer **two components **to help make the math units meaningful and engaging for whole group, small group or individual lessons. This curriculum gives the teacher flexibility and freedom to rearrange the units to fit the needs of his/her students. Since there are so many practice pages and centers in each unit, the teacher can use many of the pages and centers as a spiral review as the year progresses. The more challenging activities would be best suited for this type of approach.

The grade level standards for each practice page and center are clearly indicated on the **First Grade Math Standards Sheet**. Therefore, you don’t have to guess as to which standard is being covered. You can KNOW for sure that **ALL** the standards are being covered. This type of resource makes it easy for the teacher or homeschooler to supplement their current math curriculum or implement these units as new curriculum.

Below, you can see how each page corresponds with the grade level standards for first grade. Once you cover the specific pages for a standard with the NO PREP practice pages, you can now refer to the standards page for the centers. In contrast to a scripted word-for-word lesson plan, this math curriculum allows for flexibility, giving the teacher control of the scope and sequence.

**NO PREP Practice Pages-** We all know that kids need a lot of practice to help master math concepts and to help them retain the knowledge. So I’ve made sure that each First Grade Math Unit will have a variety of fun **NO PREP **practice/worksheet pages for students to practice, practice, practice! These NO PREP practice pages allow students to master math concepts through **cutting and pasting**, **coloring**, **dice games **and **more**! Best of all, you can refer back to the First Grade Math Standards page and see which standard each page covers! Furthermore, you can connect these pages to a center that covers the SAME standard!

**Math Centers-** Each unit will have a variety of math centers or stations to help students practice and apply skills and strategies taught within the math unit. These math centers are purposeful and will help to make each math concept more concrete. Math centers or stations increase student motivation by:

*****Providing meaningful learning opportunities

*****Fostering independence

*****Allowing for differentiation

***Best of all…**they make learning math **FUN!**

*******NOTE:** ALL math centers are also available in **black and white.** You can print the centers in black and white on colored paper to save on colored ink while still keeping it fun.

This comprehensive and full First Grade math curriculum ensures that **all grade level math standards are being covered **in a variety of ways! The units allow for critical thinking, use of manipulatives, fun and engaging practice pages, and interactive centers that are sure to keep your students wanting more math!

There are **29 Hands-On Centers** in this Unit! It is HUGE! I’m excited to show you each center and how it works.

In this activity, students will skip count by 2’s and fill in the missing numbers on the busses. Record the numbers on the recording sheet.

Flip a card. Find the space on the board and fill in the number. Continue to fill the board until you find the mystery number.

I know that teachers who are organized are more likely to be successful! In my experience, being organized makes us feel more relaxed and able to enjoy the teaching process. It also helps the day go more smoothly. So today I want to show you an easy solution to organizing the First Grade Math Units.

I store all of the units inside of sterilite containers. There are 29 math centers in this box. It is a tight squeeze, but they all fit. This is a great option if you are short on space. Costco also sells beautiful containers that are a bit larger.

I like to place each center in a plastic gallon-sized bag.

Each center has a card that explains how to play each game or complete each activity. At the same time, I’ve numbered the centers for easy access and reference for each grade-level standard. Each unit will have its own binder and math center bin.

I print and put all of the NO PREP Practice Pages into a dedicated binder. Each unit will have its own binder. This allows me to pull the pages that I need to copy and print. When I am finished, I place them back into the binder. You can also use a dry erase maker with many of the pages, making this a great option if you are limited in the number of copies you are allowed to make.

Each unit has a quick reference guide, highlighting the FIRST GRADE standards that are covered in the unit.

One of my absolute **FAVORITE** things about this First Grade Math Curriculum is that **EVERY** grade level standard is covered in the bundle! I also tell you exactly which standard each page covers in the NO PREP Binder!

Each center fulfills a specific grade level standard also. Furthermore, this curriculum allows you to connect the practice pages with the centers that correspond to the standard you are working on! Consequently, you can seamlessly implement this curriculum into ANY current curriculum or use it as a stand-alone curriculum!

If you have ANY questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at themoffattgirls@gmail.com .

I hope your kids LOVE this math curriculum, and I know it will help make you into a super star teacher!

Happy Teaching!

]]>The post How to Build Sight Word Fluency appeared first on Moffatt Girls.

]]>**Sight Word Statistics:**

***12 Sight Words **make up about **25%** of those we read and write.

***100 Sight Words **make up about **50% **of those we read and write.

*About **300 Sight Words **account for **75%** of those we read and write.

When we teach sight words strategically, specifically and consistently, we build readers who are confident and fluent!

When I teach sight words, I don’t have students sound them out. Many of the sight words are **not decodable with early phonics skills**. For example, sounding out the word **the** for a child**, t/h/e **does not work. Beginning and struggling readers may not understand how to use the th digraph and the schwa sound to sound out the word the. To help, I always use a non verbal cue of circling the sight word. This indicates that we read the word on demand without sounding it out. To clerify, we sound out other words like CVC words, but not sight words.

In addition, students need repetition and practice reading the word in context to help them master the word. For this reason, the Sight Word Fluency pages allow the students to see the word, trace the word and read the word multiple times in a pyramid sentence. The most effective way to use the Sight Word Fluency Pyramid Sentences is to** show** the word (upper right hand corner), **say** the word, **trace** the word, and **read** the word in context in a sentence.

Here is a look at the Pre-Primer Edition that includes the Pre-Primer Sight Words and CVC words…

The sentence below is comprised of** 5 pre-primer sight words**: where, is, the, big, red and 1 CVC phonics word: mug.

By providing students with **genuine opportunities to read and decode** sentences at their reading level, we help them become confident and fluent readers!

On the card below, there are 4 pre-primer sight words (can, you, the and big) in this sentence and two decodable CVC words (get and net).

The Primer Edition will include **Primer sight words**, **CVCe** words and a review of **CVC** words. The star at the on the E in the CVCe word indicates that the vowel is long and the e is silent. This is the “magic e”

The First Grade Edition will include First Grade sight words,** beginning and ending blend short vowel words** and a review of **CVCe word.** The blend words are indicated by the two dots and a line linked together. This reminds the student that this is a blend word.

The **Second Grade Packet** will include all the 2nd Grade sight words, **digraphs and r-controlled vowel words.**

The **Third Grade Packet** will include all the 3rd Grade sight words, **trigraphs long vowels and a review of other phonics words.**

I hope this makes learning sight words fun and effective!

Happy teaching!

Two players take turns rolling a die. The player who rolls picks a number in the row that matches the die and decides if the first number is greater than, less than or equal to the second. The player who gets the most correct wins! Laminate the page, use 2 different dry erase makers for a quick game that can be played again and again! This center included two different game boards.

Spin both spinners. Build the numbers on the recording sheet and circle the number that is greater. There are a total of 5 different spinner cards in this center.

Count the dots on each side of a domino. Use a clothespin to show greater than, less than or equal to.

Two players each flip a card and place it on the square. The person who has the greater number wins that round and gets to color a cube on a rod. The player who fills the rods first wins the game.

Read the sentence and decide if it is true or false.

Flip a card and decide if the first number is greater than, less than or equal to the second number.

Draw a card, compare the towers and match the card with the correct sentence.

The Feed Me Games are played with 2 or more players. This allows students to count and compare items such as ten frames, numbers, dice, objects and fingers. The person with the greater number feeds the animal. The first person to get rid of all their cards, wins the game!

Two players get half of the cards. Each player turns one card. The player with the greater number feeds the bone to the dog. The person who feeds all of their bones to the dog wins! If the bones have the same number, both players feed the dog!

Two players get half of the cards. Each player turns one card. The player with the greater number feeds the rainbow to the unicorn. The person who feeds all of their rainbows to the unicorn wins! If the rainbows have the same number, both players feed the unicorn!

Two players get half of the cards. Each player turns one card. The player with the greater number feeds the fly to the frog. The person who feeds all of their flies to the frog wins! If the flies have the same number, both players feed the frog!

Two players get half of the cards. Each player turns one card. The player with the greater number feeds the carrot to the bunny. The person who feeds all of their carrots to the bunny wins! If the carrots have the same number, both players feed the bunny!

Two players each turn a card. The player with the card that has the greater number keeps both cards. The player with the most cards wins!

Count the objects in the box. If the number matches the rule at the top of the strip, clip a clothes pin on the box. Each strip has 3 matching boxes.

I store the NO PREP Practice pages in a 1-inch binder. I place each practice page in a sheet protector. This allows you to easily grab and copy the pages that you need or have students use a dry erase marker for a quick wipe and write activity.

]]>Kindergarten Math Made Fun Unit 9 is here, and it’s all about SHAPES!

This hands-on, engaging and FUN unit will get kids excited about basic shapes! Not only will they become familiar with shapes and the names of shapes, but students will become MASTERS of these shapes as they learn to manipulate and construct them in multiple ways! Therefore, I am happy to share this hands-on math Unit 9 of the Kindergarten Math Made Fun Curriculum with you!

Unit 4 (Comparing Numbers 1-10)

Save BIG with the BUNDLE! Available **HERE**

(This post contains affiliate links.)

For Unit 9, these are the grade level standards that are covered:

To start, roll a die. Then say the name of the shape, and cover a shape that matches. Students can play with a partner or by themselves.

Use pattern blocks to make new shapes for each page.

Use different materials (woodsies, play dough, popsicle sticks, clay, etc.) to build shapes such as squares, rectangles, hexagons and triangles.

Choose a picture card. Use pattern blocks to build the picture. Record the number of each shape you used for your picture.

First create pictures with shapes at the bottom of the page. Then glue your shapes to the page and write how many of each shape you used.

Build 4 different Square Puzzles with the different colored puzzle pieces.

**NOTE: **There are 4 different puzzles for each shape. I printed the puzzles on colored paper and laminated them. The** RED **puzzles are** EASY**, the** ORANGE **puzzles are** MEDIUM **in difficulty, the** YELLOW **puzzles are** CHALLENGING **and the** GREEN **puzzles are** EXTRA CHALLENGING**.** ** To start, introduce the easy puzzles first. Then, once students have started to build better problem-solving skills, they can progress to the more challenging puzzles. **NOTE**: For students who may lack spatial awareness, you can print the pages with the dotted lines (the puzzle piece pages) instead of the blank shape. Students can assemble right onto this page and use the dotted lines as a guide. ****SEE TRIANGLE and SQUARE below for example! **

Build 4 different Circle Puzzles with the different colored puzzle pieces.

Build 4 different Triangle Puzzles with the different colored puzzle pieces.

Build 4 different Rectangle Puzzles with the different colored puzzle pieces.

Build 4 different Hexagon Puzzles with the different colored puzzle pieces.

To begin, create shapes on the Geoboards with the given materials (pipe cleaners, wikki stix, play dough, etc). Then record your answers on the recording sheets. For this activity, you can allow students to use many different items to create the shapes, such as dry erase markers, play dough, pipe cleaners or wax sticks.

Count the sides and corners of the shapes. Clip the correct number to match.

Sort the pictures to the correct shape mat: circles, squares, triangles, hexagons and rectangles.

Sort the pictures to the correct shape mat: cubes, spheres, cones and cylinders.

To start, spin the spinner. Then use pattern blocks to cover the honey hive. Keep spinning and playing until the hive is filled.

First, spin the spinner. Then use pattern blocks to cover the pizza pieces and fill the board.

Use a brad and a binder clip to make an easy spinner!

First sort the pictures to match the position of the shape. Then say the position of the shape to the object. For example, the triangle is inside the wagon.

Experiment with the 3D shapes and decide if they can roll, slide and stack. Record the answers on your recording sheet.

First, clip clothespins to the shapes that match. Then record the answers by coloring in the matching shape on your recording sheet.

Complete the pattern puzzles by matching the shapes that come next in the pattern.

I store the NO PREP Practice pages in a 1-inch binder. I place each practice page in a sheet protector. This allows you to easily grab and copy the pages that you need or have students use a dry erase marker for a quick wipe and write activity.
