First Grade Math Tests

The first grade is all about knowing your numbers. Being able to read them, write them, and count them. The goal for students is to understand the relationship that numbers share between one another. We explore how to add and subtract numbers. The best way to approach addition and subtraction with students is to present it as counting forward (adding) and then backward (subtracting). We end this school year helping students learn how to compare values and organize them into categories. There is minimal geometry at this level, but we do get into describing shapes. I never thought I would see such challenging material for this grade level. The curriculum has some what forced this level of assessment. I tried to tone down the confusing problems to make it more productive for students. Drop me a line if you feel that I missed anything for this level.

Good Habits for First Grade Math Test Takers

The is really the first time students will begin to see what tests are in math class. Teachers will often begin with no time limits or very generous time limits. As the year progress on, tests are much more likely to be timed and students will need to adjust. Many first grade students have no concept where to begin studying and/or how to take a test. When it comes to studying, I would encourage students to have good study habits by helping them and their parents building a study schedule for themselves. It maybe just five to ten minutes spent on flashcards per day. It could also be some homework sheets that you sent home with them (hint, hint: you will find those above.) I would also encourage students to minimize distractions during this time. Put phones and tablets away when you are concentrating on your studies. It might even help you setup a timer to make sure that you are sticking to a timed amount of studying. Study buddies often are helpful. I would recommend you find a partner and one student acts like the teacher and asks questions, while the other acts as the student. After a few minutes, flip responsibilities.
