Social Studies:

 SS.1.CIV.3A citizen is a member of a community or group. Students are citizens of their local and global communities. SS.1.CIV.4People create governments in order to create peace and establish order. Laws are created to protect the rights and define the responsibilities of individuals and groups. SS.1.GEO.6People and communities depend on and modify their physical environment in order to meet basic needs. SS.1.TCC.7Families have a past and change over time. There are different types of documents that relate family histories. (NOTE: Teachers will use their professional judgment and demonstrate sensitivity regarding the varied family structures of their students and availability of information.) SS.1.TCC.8Historical sources reveal information about how life in the past differs from the present.

Science:

 MST4Students will understand and apply scientific concepts, principles, and theories pertaining to the physical setting and living environment and recognize the historical development of ideas in science.

 RL.1.1Ask and answer questions about key details in a text. RL.1.2Retell stories, including key details, and demonstrate understanding of their central message or lesson. RL.1.3Describe characters, settings, and major events in a story, using key details. RL.1.4Identify words and phrases in stories or poems that suggest feelings or appeal to the senses. RL.1.5Explain major differences between books that tell stories and books that give information, drawing on a wide reading of a range of text types. RL.1.6Identify who is telling the story at various points in a text. RL.1.7Use illustrations and details in a story to describe its characters, setting, or events. RL.1.8(Not applicable to literature) RL.1.9Compare and contrast the adventures and experiences of characters in stories. RL.1.9.aWith prompting and support, students will make cultural connections to text and self. RL.1.10With prompting and support, read prose and poetry of appropriate complexity for grade 1.

Language Arts: Writing

 W.1.1Write opinion pieces in which they introduce the topic or name the book they are writing about, state an opinion, supply a reason for the opinion, and provide some sense of closure. W.1.2Write informative/explanatory texts in which they name a topic, supply some facts about the topic, and provide some sense of closure. W.1.3Write narratives in which they recount two or more appropriately sequenced events, include some details regarding what happened, use temporal words to signal event order, and provide some sense of closure. W.1.5With guidance and support from adults, focus on a topic, respond to questions and suggestions from peers, and add details to strengthen writing as needed. W.1.7Participate in shared research and writing projects (e.g., explore a number of "how-to" books on a given topic and use them to write a sequence of instructions). W.1.8With guidance and support from adults, recall information from experiences or gather information from provided sources to answer a question.

Language Arts: Speaking and Listening

Language Arts: Language

 L.1.1Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English grammar and usage when writing or speaking. L.1.1.aPrint all upper- and lowercase letters. L.1.1.bUse common, proper, and possessive nouns. L.1.1.cUse singular and plural nouns with matching verbs in basic sentences (e.g., He hops; We hop). L.1.1.dUse personal, possessive, and indefinite pronouns (e.g., I, me, my; they, them, their; anyone, everything). L.1.1.eUse verbs to convey a sense of past, present, and future (e.g., Yesterday I walked home; Today I walk home; Tomorrow I will walk home). L.1.1.fUse frequently occurring adjectives. L.1.1.gUse frequently occurring conjunctions (e.g., and, but, or, so, because). L.1.1.hUse determiners (e.g., articles, demonstratives). L.1.1.iUse frequently occurring prepositions (e.g., during, beyond, toward). L.1.1.jProduce and expand complete simple and compound declarative, interrogative, imperative, and exclamatory sentences in response to prompts.

Mathematics: Counting and Cardinality

 1.NBT.1Count to 120, starting at any number less than 120. In this range, read and write numerals and represent a number of objects with a written numeral. 1.NBT.6Subtract multiples of 10 in the range 10-90 from multiples of 10 in the range 10-90 (positive or zero differences), using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used.

Mathematics: Operations and Algebraic Thinking

 1.MD.1Order three objects by length; compare the lengths of two objects indirectly by using a third object. 1.MD.2Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps. Limit to contexts where the object being measured is spanned by a whole number of length units with no gaps or overlaps

Mathematics: Number and Operations and Base Ten

 1.MD.3Tell and write time in hours and half-hours using analog and digital clocks. Recognize and identify coins, their names, and their value. 1.MD.4Organize, represent, and interpret data with up to three categories; ask and answer questions about the total number of data points, how many in each category, and how many more or less are in one category than in another.
