StandardMeasure and order objects based on length.

Core Standard1.MD.1 Order three objects by length; compare the lengths of two objects indirectly by using a third object.
1.MD.2 Express 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 samesize 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.. 
In Other WordsStudents will be able to order three objects from shortest to longest.
Students will be able to lay objects ( paper clips, crayons, beans,etc.) in a line with no gaps or overlaps, to measure how long an object is. 
If Mastered1.MD.1 Parents or child gathers a bucket of household objects and chooses three objects from the bucket and lays them in order from shortest to longest. Math Activity Sentence Frames: http://www.k5mathteachingresources.com/supportfiles/Measurementsentenceframesset1.pdf
1.MD.2 Student makes a nonstandard measuring tool by gluing paper clips or beans end to end on a strip of cardboard. Student uses the measuring tool to measure household objects and demonstrates understanding by explaining how they measured one household object.

If Not Yet Mastered1.MD.1 Parents or child gathers a bucket of household objects, parents choose three objects and shows child how to compare lengths and order them from shortest to longest. Discuss with child strategy used, repeat 34 times and then allow child to order on their own. Parent checks for accuracy.

StandardTell and write time in hours and halfhours.

Core Standard1.MD.3 Tell and write time in hours and halfhours using analog and digital clocks.

In Other WordsStudents will be able to tell the time in hours (1:00) and half hours (1:30) using analog and digital clocks.

If MasteredStudent makes an analog clock using a paper plate and strips of paper for hands. Parent states a time to the hour or half hour and student makes it on their homemade clock. Math Activity for automaticity and fluency: O'clock and Half Past http://www.k5mathteachingresources.com/MeasurementInteractiveWhiteboardResources.html

If Not MasteredStudent and parent make an analog clock using a paper plate and strips of paper for the hands. Parent states a time and shows child how to make it on the clock, pointing out the minute and hour hand, and how a clock works. Repeat 34 times, then parent states time and child makes the time on their homemade clock. Parent corrects any errors and reteaches as needed.

StandardRepresent and interpret data.

Core Standard1.MD.4 Organize, 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..

In Other WordsStudents can create and read a graph and chart with up to three categories. Students can ask and answer questions about how many in each category and how many more or less are in one category than in another.

If MasteredParent helps student draw a blank bar graph with three categories, then child gathers three small different small household items, and puts them in a paper bag. Child shakes the bag and parent pulls out one object and child records by coloring one box in the correct category on their graph. Repeat 20 times. Then have child explain the comparisons that their graph shows.

If Not MasteredParent draws a blank bar graph with three categories, and helps student gather three small household items. They put items in a paper bag. Child shakes the bag, and parent draws out an item, and shows the child how to record it on the graph. Repeat 20 times. Then parent asks questions such as: which has the most? which has the least? how many more or less in each category? Repeat with different objects until child can record the graph and make comparisons on their own.

Identify and compare the values of pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters.

1.MD.5 Identify the values of pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters and know their comparative values. Use appropriate notation to designate a coin’s value.

Students will be able to tell the name of each coin and how much each is worth. For example: “This is a dime and it is worth 10 cents, which is more than a nickel, which is 5 cents.”

Parent gives student a handful of coins and student tells the value of the coins together.

Parent gives student a coin and asks what it is and how much it is worth. Student names coin and tells how much it is worth.
