Year 1 Math Vocabulary Printables

Our Year 1 Math Vocabulary Printables are guaranteed to help students’ build their math vocabulary. Posters, Printables & Distance Learning Activities for learning Year 1 Math words! 

I am a BIG fan of spending time “Talking” about maths with my students, especially when revisiting or introducing a new math concept. In this blog post we’ll share with you why you should be too, and the math vocabulary Resources you need to get your started! 

A quick 5 minute brainstorm  of math words and the meaning saves a whole world of confusion and helps the kids feel knowledgable about maths BEFORE they’ve even solved a math problem!  So learning math words and building math vocabulary is a ‘MUST’ in all my math lessons! 

Did you know that there’s a ton of research to support the importance of good math vocabulary and achievement levels? 

Yep! Researchers have found that spending time on building math vocabulary will have a huge impact on student achievement.

 Studies by Swan & Dunstan; Hirsh & Nation found:

  • vocabulary is connected with reading comprehension and is predictor of students’ comprehension
  • Students need to know 90-95% of the words in a text before they can comprehend that text
  • Vocabulary need to be explicitly taught first
  • Students from low socio economic areas need greater support
  • Teaching math vocabulary can help raise student achievement levels
  • Students with high vocabularies are better at mathematical reasoning

So it’s pretty clear that including math vocabulary activities is a winner!
