Re: 1st Grade Math--keep thinking I need to buy Singapore 1A

I don't have any earlier experience to go on, so I thought I would just share some of the things I do with number of the day in case any of it will be of use to anyone. We start with the 100 chart and fill in the new number and then count by 1s, 2s, 5's or 10's from the beginning or count backwards ...

Re: More and Less (Math)

Thank you Shawna and Crystal!! S- the fish actually sound perfect for my son. He loves fish things (thanks to Finding Nemo). He does not care about typical boy things like cars, rocks, etc. I think I will create my own version of this with some fish pictures that I laminated and used as potty traini...
