The first year of elementary school is where your child’s learning starts to really kick into gear. You’ve already established in them basic learning skills like number and letter recognition, but now it’s time to take those fundamentals and transition them into more advanced tools that will be used for the rest of their life.
During your student’s time in the 1st grade, they will focus on reading, writing, phonics, and basic math problems. Many popular resources include alphabet activities, books for beginning readers, basic math worksheets, copywork worksheets, and more. Discover interactive activities, math centers, literacy centers, and money recognition games, musical instruments, and more products to make learning fun for your 1st grade students. Use coloring pages, puzzles, musical lessons, and board games to turn every lesson into a game.
Want to add an unexpected lesson to your 1st grade curriculum? Use a teddy bear or stuffed animal to ask your students for the answer to a basic addition problem. Students are more likely to retain a lesson when that lesson includes fun and laughter. Educents offers many free resources for any educator to use in the classroom, at an after-school program, or at home.
