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.

## Add and subtract within twenty.

Assign templates like these to get students to fluently add and subtract within 20.

At your Wixie home page, open the Curriculum library to browse templates connected to this learning goal by opening the Math > Numbers and Operations > and Computation folders.

You can also find these using the Search field at the top with keywords such as: add, subtract, addition, and subtraction.

## Understand relationship between addition and subtraction.

Assign templates like these to get students to understand problems and relationships between addition and subtraction as well as equal and unequal equations.

At your Wixie home page, open the Curriculum library to browse templates connected to this learning goal by opening the Math > Numbers and Operations > and Computation folders.

You can also find these using the Search field at the top with keywords like: fact, equal, dice.

## Explore place value.

Assign templates like these to help students understand 2-digit place value.

At your Wixie home page, open the Curriculum library to browse templates connected to this learning goal by opening the Math > Numbers and Operations > Base Ten folders.

You can also find these using the Search field at the top with keywords such as: base ten, place value, ten.

## Measure length and time.

Assign templates like these to get students to understand basic units of measurement and be able to tell and write time.

At your Wixie home page, open the Curriculum library to browse templates connected to this learning goal by opening the Math > Measurement folders.

You can also find these using the Search field at the top with keyword: length and time.

## Represent and interpret data.

Assign templates like these to get students to organize, understand, and represent data with up to three categories.

At your Wixie home page, open the Curriculum library to browse templates connected to this learning goal by opening the Math > Data Analysis > Graphing folders.

You can also find these using the Search field at the top with keyword: graph and data.

## Reason with shapes and their attributes.

Assign templates like these to help students draw shapes that have specific attributes as well as create composite shapes and divide them equally.

At your Wixie home page, open the Curriculum library to browse templates connected to this learning goal by opening the Math > Geometry folders.

You can also find these using the Search field at the top with the keyword: shape and half.

## Open-ended Math Projects

Wixie is way more than a template tool. With Wixie, students can write, draw, and record to demonstrate their mathematical understanding and comprehension in creative ways. For example, students can capture images of math in the real world, write math stories, and create math designs that use measurement and geometry.

Explore creative math lessons that get first-grade learners making and applying their math knowledge.
