# Grade 1 Math at Home

Welcome! We’ll update this page every weekday with a new math activity. Many of the activities will be fun and worthwhile for students of all ages so that you can do them as a family. The following day, we’ll share examples of how other people did the activity so you can check your work and stretch your thinking.

• fluency with addition and subtraction facts within 10; doubles through at least 6 + 6

• addition and subtraction with teen numbers

• adding 10 to make teen numbers (3 + 10 = 13)

• subtracting 10 or ones from teen numbers (16 – 6 = 10)

• solving story problems that involve adding and subtracting beyond 20

We’ll do a lot of work with shapes and patterns, too!

## Math & Game Tools

DIY spinners, origami dice, and more!

## Math in Our World: The Spice Rack

Do you know what spices are? They add flavor to food. Yum!

I love to use spices when I cook meals at home.

I keep my favorite jars of spices on this spice rack.

1. Show what is happening using pictures, models, or numbers.

1. What do you notice? What do you wonder?

### How could you get started?

1. Think about how many jars of spices are on each shelf.

2. Then think about how many jars there are in all. Combining 2 shelves to make a group of 10 jars might help.

3. How can you write an equation that matches the situation?

### Challenge

1. Show your work to someone else. Use numbers and math words to explain your thinking. Did they understand?

### Follow-Up

Find some shelves in your home with spices, cans of food, or other similar objects. Make up your own story problem with the results and share it with us!
