Where can I get math lesson plans for a mild intellectual disability?

I need lessons for first grade. I googled it but can't find any.

  • What kind of math are you looking for? Google 1st grade math- there's tons of stuff. If you let me know what your looking for specifically I can help a little bit more.

  • I was hoping to find some fun ways to teach addition and subtraction to get a student of mine actively participating in class. He just can't seem to understand that addition is the opposite of subtraction.

  • Look up Marilyn Burns. She's da guru on concept based math lessons. Ur child will better understand number sense if they work on her activities, plus they're fun.

  • I teach first grade alot of my kids have problems with that too. Have you used fact families?? We do them like this- The biggest number is the daddy, the middle number the mom, and the smallest number is the baby. Then you can mix them up to make different addition and subtraction sentences. Good luck!!
