First grade

Unread post by allgrace »

I am just wondering if the math program in first grade is complete without the library books? We don't have a good library and I have started buying bookbasket books but can't buy too many. I am going to be teaching CTG also so I will buy books for that. Do I need books for first math and science too? Or will ctg books be enough? Are there certain first grade book basket topics to focus on?
Thanks

Hi Grace,

Yes, the 1st grade package is complete on its own.

There is a list of 1st grade math topics covered on the Lesson Overview pages in the 1st grade sample: https://www.mfwbooks.com/itemFiles/9210 ... Sample.pdf .

Those math topics are covered in several ways throughout the year, using a variety of materials:
  • Hands-on materials (Unifix Cubes, Geared Student Clock, Wooden Pattern Blocks, Pattern Animals: Puzzles for Pattern Blocks)
  • Activities in the Teacher's Manual and Student Sheets
  • Supplementary materials (Horizontal Addition and Subtraction Flashcard Set, games and practice pages inThe Complete Book of Math)
The literature is a great addition, but you can cover all the topics without those books, if they are not available.

Hi, Grace ~

I just want to second what Julie said about First math. It is so complete. Our daughter is now 13, and we were so pleased at the solid foundation it gave her, and will give your little one for future math in years to come!

Btw, CTG & 1st are really fun to do together! Enjoy! :-)
