- Info regarding methods used in this book:
- I couldn’t include Thinking Tools methods as Grade 1 can’t read in the first term.
- I used a lot of pictures to help learners understand concepts.
- Teachers and parents must remember to ALWAYS use concrete apparatus (physical objects like stones, blocks, cars, marbles, etc.) in Grade 1 TOGETHER with written activity.
- In Grade 1, especially in Term 1, the focus is on concrete.
- All pictures in black-and-white to be coloured in at learners.
