First graders have been working on telling time and learning how to estimate. Learning time and money is a very difficult concept in first grade. It is an introduction and then repeated again in second grade. Here are some suggestions for home:
- Practice recognition of coins. What’s a dime, penny, etc.
- What’s the value of the coin.
- Practice adding a few coins.
In addition, the first graders learned the following lessons: place value, review of numbers 0-100, estimation, expanded form, one more and one less, numbers before and after, counting by 2’s and 5’s, and lastly learning odd and even numbers.
