Taking Advantage of Teachable Moments

You may not have realized it but just about any activity that a child performs on a daily basis is usable for meaningful teaching. First-grade math activities get kids into the habit of solving everyday problems, which is a task that will go on for the rest of their lives, becoming more complex as they do more and see more. It makes sense to get them started early on in their educational career, at home and at school. Copy or paste these activities into another document to edit or download for printing.
