Number Sense

In grade 1, students work with many concepts that will form the basis of their understanding of place value and further number sense.

One of the key developments is moving students away from seeing numbers as just part of a counting sequence and towards understanding their relationships to other numbers.

There are four interrelated number relationships (5&10 anchors, subitizing, part part whole, and near numbers) that students will work on in grade 1, hopefully continuing work from Kindergarten.  A good foundation in these relationships should be in place before looking at the addition strategies.

Number Relationship Mat

This mat guides students to take a number and construct a variety of number relationships. When laminated, students can work on them with erasable markers, using a new number each week.
