    An important part of the 1st grade curriculum is getting to know basic math facts. Rapid recall of these facts will help your child continue to succeed as he or she faces more difficult problems. This should be done in several stages:  

     

    •            Addition facts 5-10
    •           Subtraction facts from 10
    •          Addition facts 11-15 and then up to 20.
    •         Subtraction facts from 20.
