If you are calling for a Substitute Teacher to manage your grade 1 class for the day, you have found the right place. If you are a Substitute Teacher for grade 1, you are in the right place too. We put together a nice package of worksheets and lessons for grade 1 students. They can work independently on most of the work. There are a number key grad 1 skills students must progress towards over the course of the year. We are working to get readers to be able to retell shirt stories that they have read and even writing about them. We are building their vocabulary to a point where they are ready to write their own sentences. When they write, we want them using their own personal perspective. This helps keep them engaged and motivated. They are slowly mastering their use of numerals up to thirty and they can add to ten. We are starting to explore geometry just a bit at the grade 1 level. Students do understand time and calendar concepts. Like the day of the week and name of the month. They start counting money towards the end of the school year. There is a social skills component, but those are only something you want to explore if you have the pleasure of working with this group of students for an extended period of time. This is because it takes at least several days to build a rapport with students of an entire class and be able to maintain control of learning and behaviors at this level.
The following worksheets can be left for a substitute teacher if you have to be out of the classroom for a day or more. Each sheet has an activity that fits within the First Grade curriculum, including subjects such as simple math, beginning language skills, writing practice, art, and more. These worksheets can also be used as part of a standard lesson plan, extra credit work, quiet time activities, and more. Please note that in some cases, answer keys have been provided. These must be printed separately, as they are not included with the main page.
