Let’s have a look at a sample of these Fall Math activities in action.
Numbers and Counting
The Fall Math Activities (1st Grade) packet covers counting and numbers from 1 – 10 for children still developing basic counting skills to counting up to 100. The variety of math worksheets ensures that you are able to differentiate the math activities and meet the needs of all students in the 1st grade.
In the Apples Spin and Color a Ten Frame activity, students use a paper clip to spin a number and color the apple with the matching ten frame. The ten frames allow the student to visually see how numbers work together and helps build number sense skills.
Once students are able to count to ten, it is time to introduce them to teen numbers. With the worksheet Ten Frames in the Fall, students use colorful markers or pencils to color a ten frame to match the numeral in the pumpkin beside each ten frame. For teen numbers, the ten frames visually show students how a group of numbers becomes recognisable to allow for faster counting.
The Pumpkins Spin and Color a Ten Frame activity reinforces counting from 11 – 20 in a fun and hands on way. As with the Apples Spin and Color a Ten Frame, students use a paper clip to spin a number and color a pumpkin with a matching ten frame. This activity is an ideal follow-up to Ten Frames in the Fall.
Learning to recognize number words is covered by the Fall Number Words Worksheets. In both these worksheets, students read the number word and color the matching numeral beneath.
Skip counting is a foundational skill for multiplication and division. The Skip Counting by 10s worksheet gives your students the opportunity to practice counting with multiples of 10. You can pair this activity with base ten blocks or math counters to create a hands on math learning center for your students and to help them find the next multiple of 10.
Students cut and paste the numbers in the correct order to count by multiples of 10 to 100.
In the Skip Counting by 5s worksheet, students cut and paste the pumpkins in the correct order to count by multiples of 5.
Help your students build an understanding of the base ten system with this scarecrow Place Value worksheet. Students identify the tens and ones for the two digit numbers and write these numbers in expanded form.
In the More and Less activity, students are given another opportunity to develop their place value skills for numbers to 100. Students spin a 2 digit number and write it on the grid. By adding 1 more and 1 less, and 10 more and 10 less, students will identify the patterns that are found on the 100 number chart and be able to work on their addition and subtraction skills.
Knowledge of odd and even numbers is a foundational skill for division. Even numbers can be divided equally into two groups, whereas odd numbers cannot be divided equally into two groups. Reinforce this math skill with this fun Even and Odd Numbers color by code activity. Add math counters to help students identify the numbers that are odd and even.
Addition and Subtraction
Number bonds show the part part whole relationship between numbers. In 1st grade, number bonds are a stepping stone to addition and subtraction, and to the development of mental calculation skills. In the pumpkin number bonds worksheet, students solve number bonds to 20. A number line is provided at the top of the worksheet to help students solve each number bond.
Number bonds are a visual representation of an addition problem. They also help students see the missing addend in the addition problem. Ten frames are another strategy for visually representing addition facts with missing addends. In the Missing Addends worksheet, students use the ten frames to draw the missing addend in order to complete the addition fact. Have students complete this math worksheet using math manipulatives for a concrete hands on activity.
Doubles Facts is another addition skill that is important for students to master. Knowledge and an understanding of doubles facts aids in mental calculation in which one addend is 1 or 2 more than the other addend.
In the Double Facts to 12 math worksheet, students roll a die and double the number they rolled. Students color the matching number on the grid. A student needs to get 4 in a row to complete the game. Beneath the 4 in a row game, is a section for students to record the double facts to 12.
Similarly, in Double Facts to 20, students spin a number, double the result and color the answer on the grid. Students need to get 5 in a row to complete the game. Beneath the 5 in a row game is a section for students to record the double facts to 20.
There are a number os subtraction math worksheets included in the Fall Math Activities (1st Grade) packet. In the Pumpkin Subtraction worksheet, students work on subtraction by spinning a number and subtracting it from 10. This math activity is ideal for inclusion in a math learning center.
Measurement, Graphing, and Patterns
In grade 1, students continue working on measurement using non-standard units. In the Fall Measurement math worksheet, students are shown how they can measure the height or length of an object using a base ten rod. Students can color the units on the base ten rod to visually see the height or length of the Fall object.
The following measurement activity provides students with an opportunity to practice standard linear measurement with a ruler. Using the ruler, students identify how far a worm has traveled to reach an apple. Lines are provided to show the distance traveled. This math worksheet is a great way to provide practice work so students will be prepared for real-world ruler activities.
Before students can learn to tell the time, they need to know the Parts of a Clock. This fun hands on labelling activity is a great way to reinforce the Parts of a Clock. Students cut and paste the labels and create their own mini anchor chart that they can reference when working on telling time.
In the Fall Time I math worksheet, students practice telling time to the hour. The time is displayed on an analog clock and students write the time in digital format.
Fractions and Geometry
The earliest fraction concepts students need to understand include the notion of equal parts and the recognition of halves, thirds and quarters. Once students have had concrete hands on experience with fractions, this fun and engaging math activity reinforces the recognition of halves, thirds and quarters. Students spin a fraction and color an apple containing a matching representation of that fraction.
2D and 3D shapes are covered with fun worksheets in which students identify and label the shape and then color matching real life objects that have the same shape. Below is the 2D Shapes worksheet.
Lots more activities are included in the Fall Math Activities (1st Grade) packet.
Don’t forget to check out the FREE Fall Alphabet Puzzles Activity. Students cut and paste lowercase alphabet letters to the matching uppercase alphabet letters to complete the Fall puzzle and spell the word matching the picture.
