MATERIALS AND THEIR PROPERTIES This collection of activities can be used in countless ways. I have provided a set of bulletin board chart displays with a specific material (metal, wood,plastic, fabric, rubber, paper, clay, leather) and corresponding name labels. These can be used as a display and/or children can play a game and sort the property labels to match each material. e.g rubber – stretchy, flexible etc I have provided an assortment of smaller pictures (which can be laminated for whole class or simply copied for each student) to be used as a sorting activity. I usually have the children tell me how to sort them and write these down and define these as the properties of materials…there is no right or wrong way to sort them.! The property words can be used to build vocabulary as flashcards also.

Each domain and standard has been reworded into a smart goal and the success criteria are the standards needed to achieve it. **Grade 1 Overview **Operations and Algebraic Thinking ** Represent and solve problems involving addition and subtraction. Understand and apply properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction. Add and subtract within 20. Work with addition and subtraction equations. **Number and Operations in Base Ten ** Extend the counting sequence. Understand place value. Use place value understanding and properties of operations to add and subtract. **Measurement and Data Measure lengths indirectly and by iterating length units. Tell and write time. Represent and interpret data. Geometry Reason with shapes and their attributes. **Mathematical Practices ** Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Reason abstractly and quantitatively. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. Model with mathematics. Use appropriate tools strategically. Attend to precision. Look for and make use of structure.

**Product Description **These posters have been made to display the USA English Language Arts Common Core Standards in your classroom. Each domain and standard has been reworded into a smart goal and the success criteria are the standards needed to achieve it. **Fully Editable ** **Grade 1 Overview ** The USA ELA Common Core Standards are divided into the strands of Reading Writing Speaking and Listening Language Reading: Text complexity and the growth of comprehension **The Reading standards place equal emphasis on the sophistication of what students read and the skill with which they read. ** **Writing: Text types, responding to reading, and research ** The Standards acknowledge the fact that whereas some writing skills, such as the ability to plan, revise, edit, and publish, are applicable to many types of writing, other skills are more properly defined in terms of specific writing types: arguments, informative/explanatory texts, and narratives. **Speaking and Listening: Flexible communication and collaboration ** Including but not limited to skills necessary for formal presentations, the Speaking and Listening standards require students to develop a range of broadly useful oral communication and interpersonal skills. **The Language standards ** Include the essential “rules” of standard written and spoken English, but they also approach language as a matter of craft and informed choice among alternatives.
