First Grade Math Practice Helps Kids Make the GradeSome students are ahead of the math game by the time they reach first grade, while others might move at a slower pace. No matter what end of the math continuum your first-grader finds himself, he’ll find helpful resources with our first grade math worksheets. From color-by-sum and dot-to-dot worksheets to activities that teach how to count money, tell time, and identify shapes, we have an endless supply of math learning tools from which to choose. But because it’s also important for youngsters to apply their math skills in real-life ways, consider using family time as way to further his math education. This can be done at the dinner table next time hamburgers are on the menu. Have your child count how many burgers are on the grill and how many buns are in the package, then do mental subtraction to determine the difference. Or practice shape recognition by calling out circle, rectangle and triangle, and have him look around the house and identify the objects that match the shape. Pretty soon your kid will be seeing math everywhere he turns.
Free Math Worksheets for Grade 1
This is a comprehensive collection of free printable math worksheets for grade 1, organized by topics such as addition, subtraction, place value, telling time, and counting money. They are randomly generated, printable from your browser, and include the answer key. The worksheets support any first grade math program, but have been specifically designed to match Math Mammoth grade 1 curriculum.
The worksheets are randomly generated each time you click on the links below. You can also get a new, different one just by refreshing the page in your browser (press F5).
You can print them directly from your browser window, but first check how it looks like in the "Print Preview". If the worksheet does not fit the page, adjust the margins, header, and footer in the Page Setup settings of your browser. Another option is to adjust the "scale" to 95% or 90% in the Print Preview. Some browsers and printers have "Print to fit" option, which will automatically scale the worksheet to fit the printable area.
All worksheets come with an answer key placed on the 2nd page of the file.
Students should be provided a 100-bead abacus or base ten blocks for these two-digit addition problems. The problems can even involve a regrouping, or making a new ten, but students are not solving the problems by writing the numbers under each other (adding in columns). The idea is just to use the manipulative to add.
