First Grade Math Worksheets

Our first grade math worksheets are aligned directly with the Core Curriculum Standards for First Grade. Each standard is throughly covered. Each topic comes complete with homework sheets, practice worksheets, and quizzes. We also we add extra materials that are out of the scope of the standards that we find on all other testing for this grade level. Some extras would include our First Grade Math Posters. These math worksheets are tailored to first grade students at both math and reading levels. Also make sure to visit our First Grade Math Tests to gauge your level of achievement with this grade level.

How To Use Our First Grade Math Worksheets

For Teachers

We have teachers take all types of different approaches with our work in their classes. Usually, the most difficult decision for teachers is not how to use this in teaching, but how should we order the topics in which we present them to students. Some teachers blindly follow the order in which the curriculum committee set up when they designed it. I find that more newer teachers do this because they were never really given any help with this when they were student teaching. Some staffs have a preset school district approach that is already setup for them. Many other teachers are left to decide by themselves. My best suggestion is to write a sample problem from each section on a 3 x 5 notecard. Some topics will have multiple looks at a topic but write a single fundamental problem. There are 30 topics here, so that would require you to make 30 notecards. When you are done arrange the problems in an order of logical sequence. This will give you your best logical approach to begin with. Also know that as you teach this, it might make more sense to reorder topics. Keep those notecards handy all year long.

We would highly suggest that you consider using our math posters to post in your classroom. Our math tests are highly recommended to assess how your students are doing with all the different content areas.

For Parents and Students

We welcome you and think that every student should consider using our work year-round. If you add this work into addition of your classroom experience you are sure to have great success. Some students are looking either to get ahead, stay on task, or catch up with their math skills. This is the perfect place for you.

For Those That Are Behind - Begin with the lesson, follow it up with the guided lesson and complete the work. Check your answers with the guided lesson explanation. Then move on to the worksheets. If you feel you are doing well, take a shot at a quiz. If you score north of 85%, you are in good shape. If not, go back and crack away at the practice sheets to get you in better standing. Always refer back to the original lesson, when in doubt.

For Those That Are Staying on Task - All of our sections will be helpful to help you push on with each of these topics. We would encourage you start with the guided lessons. If they make sense, push on to a few practice worksheets and follow it up with a quiz. If they do not make sense, drop back to the original lesson.

For Those That Are Reviewing - If you are reviewing a topic, we suggest that you start with a math quiz on that topic. You will find those at the bottom of every topic page. See how you do. If you do well, try a second quiz to make sure you have it down. If you do poorly, start at the lesson and follow through the entire topic. If you do satisfactorily, review the guided lesson and follow it up with a few worksheets. Then go back and take another quiz.



What Do Students Learn In First Grade Math Class?

In the first grade students are all about expanding their skills, which they have learned in kindergarten and preschool. The first-grade curriculum pays major emphasis on building the foundation of mathematics. Some of the things they learn in first-grade maths class are:

- Counting to 100 into small number groups such as 2s, 5s, and 10s. It helps their learning towards recognizing and writing numbers to 100. - They learn the concept of "greater than" or "equal to" as well the basic mathematical operations such as addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication. - They learn the use of symbols while using basic math operations such as "+," "-," "=," <," ">." - Adding numbers all the way up to 100 in their head. - Learning to do simple subtraction. - Working addition and subtraction using coins. - Learning to identify simple patterns. - Learning basic measurement units such as length, weight, height. - Understanding and doing simple fractions (1/2, 1/3, 1/4). - Learning to tell time on an analog clock and learning different terms for telling time.

One thing to keep in mind when taking in the concepts behind a math curriculum is that it follows a spiral curriculum.What that means is that year after year we spiral around and build on old knowledge. So in the first grade you are building on skills that you initially learned in kindergarten. When you reach second grade, you will build on the skills that you learned in first grade.This means that if we do not quite master something, we will see it again.This gives us the chance to get it right this time. But it also indicates that if you have bad habits and do not fix them, they will be a problem in the future for you.
