Eureka Math module 1

Topic A

Embedded Numbers and Decompositions

 

Focus Standard: 1.OA.1

Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.

1.OA.5 Relate counting to addition and subtraction (e.g., by counting on 2 to add 2). Instructional Days: 3

Coherence - GK–M4 - to: G2–M4

Number Pairs, Addition and Subtraction to 10
Addition and Subtraction Within 200 with Word Problems to 100

In this first module of Grade 1, students make significant progress towards fluency with addition and subtraction of numbers to 10. They are presented with opportunities intended to advance them from counting all to counting on, which leads to decomposing and composing addends and total amounts. In Kindergarten, students achieved fluency with addition and subtraction facts to 5. This means they can decompose 5 into 4 and 1, 3 and 2, and 5 and 0. They can do this without counting all. They perceive the 3 and 2 embedded within the 5.

 

Topic A continues the work of developing this ability with all the numbers within 10 in put together situations, with a special focus on the numbers 6, 7, 8, and 9 in 5-group configurations, since recognizing how much a number needs to make 10 is part of the Kindergarten standards ( ) and is easier for most children. Students decompose numbers into two visual sets, or conceptually subitize, and record their decompositions as number bonds. In Lesson 1, students use the 5-group configuration, as this organization allows students to quickly see, or perceptually subitize, the subset of 5. Once they have identified that first subset of 5, they can perceptually subitize the other part:

SEESAW/Class Dojo

I use both Seesaw and ClassDojo websites. 

 

Seesaw is used to share classroom work

 

ClassDojo is for classroom management of behavior.

 

I will send home paperwork and instructions on the first week of school.  I will also post the information on this website.

Email/passwords

I will send  all email addresses home the second week of school.  The passwords are on the back of the email.  I ask that the children place them in the back cover of their homework folders so we always have access to their emails.  Let me know if they have been lost or need to be changed.  

Thanks,

Have fun!

It is intuitive

Each keystroke is assessing one's math skills

It will soon be aligned to our EUREKA MATH program.

It is not drill and kill math work, it will move on once it determines a child has mastered a skill or standard

 

Things to do on your iPad at home!

1. Dreambox (20 minutes/night+)

2. Write/publish in Google Drive

3. Make an iMovie (storyboard/script/film/edit)

4. Post writing/iMovie/nature photos in SeeSaw or Kidblog
