Let’s Read English math curriculum is offered for students in preschool to twelfth grade. Parents can view subjects covered in the curriculum, such as discerning even and odds, presenting fractions, resolving basic addition and subtraction problems, and more.
The complete lesson plans outlined below present a detailed list of the first-grade mathematics curriculum from Let’s Read English.
Members frequently use this article as a resource for more thorough planning as a guide to help them choose particular activities by using the activity finder or differentiate our curriculum with state standards and homeschooling laws.
Students who signed up for first-grade mathematics program from Let’s Read English will get access to both kindergarten and second-grade lessons as part of their memberships. It allows them to study or review at their own pace.

The lesson activity finder is one of the numerous useful tools that Let’s Read English provides for members. The activity finder is an alternative route for parents to preview lessons or find additional practices for their children easily.
Each lesson in the curriculum has a rare activity number referred to in the lesson plans as an “LA Number.” These numbers can be detected either on the scope and sequence pages or the lesson plans in the Parent Dashboard.
Please check our hints and help section for more information which provides more details about the activity finder.
