CCSS First Grade: Basic Program

Step-by-step standards-based curriculum.


First grade units 1–4 make up TouchMath’s CCSS First Grade Basic Program. These units strategically combine the TouchMath strategy with a variety of approaches to basic skills. This unique nature of the CCSS First Grade Basic Program makes it appropriate for total classroom use or for RtI programs following the CCSS protocol. The teachers' manuals are complete with a precise scope and sequence, connections to the Common Core State Standard for every lesson, plus day-by-day lesson plans which include activities for remediating and challenging students. They also provide literature recommendations and real-life connections, making the topics relatable and digestible for young learners. A total of 12 sets of FlipCards are included with the Basic Program to help you differentiate instruction while simultaneously helping students master facts. All of these materials combine so you and your students can enjoy a straightforward, stress-free experience with first grade mathematics.
