Using Wixie to meet math standards in 1st grade

Posted by Melinda Kolk on Jan 8, 2020 1:26:04 PM

Students in first grade are learning more about subtraction and addition, place value, and geometric shapes. They are ready to build foundations for understanding how to subtract and add numbers, measure lengths as units, and classify shapes.

Wixie's curriculum library includes a range of math-focused templates you can use for formative assessment purposes or to support student thinking as they use virtual manipulatives and a blank canvas to construct understanding.

Teachers can assign Wixie templates directly to students, or customize templates to differentiate them for specific learners in their classroom. Instructions for students show in the Wixie interface and you can ask students to record their voice to explain their mathematical thinking.

Math Standards

Here are a few examples of the types of templates you will find in Wixie for specific math learning targets.
