      In September
      for a while
      I will ride a crocodile
      down the
      Chicken Soupy Nile.

      Paddle once,
      Paddle twice

      Paddle chicken soup
      with rice.

          Math - Groups of 10
          In first grade, we focus on learning groups of 10 in various ways. The children are able to recognize a ten-frame and see how many dots there are, and how many more make 10.

          Ten Frame



          You can play the card game called "Tens, Go Fish". Your child will play this game in school.

          The links below are some activities that your child can do at home to practice making groups of 10.
