The McRuffy First Grade Color Math Curriculum is a highly interactive math program that emphasizes a well-balanced variety of skills. The curriculum is comprehensive and thorough. Auditory, visual, and tactile methods are used to develop concepts. Our first grade math lesson plans contain a detailed teacher's manual, colorful workbook and resource pack containing card sets, games, posters and more. Math manipulative are used to engage students in hands-on learning.
The McRuffy Color Math series uses a spiral approach. Concepts are introduced and reviewed throughout the year. This avoids the “learn it and forget it” structure of many curriculum that segments concepts into units. Concepts that may have been too abstract at one point in the year may suddenly “click” at another time of the year.
Our first grade math lessons use popular math manipulatives. An inexpensive kit has been packaged especially for the curriculum. If you are teaching children in multiple grade levels, a Color Math Super Kit is also available, so only one kit needs to be purchased. Grade level upgrade kits are also available beginning in first grade.
The First Grade Color Math Sample includes pages from the Teacher’s Manual and corresponding workbook page.
