FLN First Step Maths Modules and Period Plans by SCERT Telangana

Primary education is like the foundation of schooling. It paves the way for the achievement
of educational goals. These goals include logical thinking and mathematical abilities. Students will
be able to achieve elementary and higher level mathematical skills only when proper foundational
numerical skills are practiced at the elementary level. Students are lagging behind at the primary leve lin the acquisition of these basic mathematical competencies and the gap keeps widening throughout schooling. National Achievement Survey - 2021 results reveal that around 70% of students are at minimum level or below in the numeracy. It seriously affects the learning of students.

In addition to this, the learning crisis creates many challenges to the school education. Considering
these circumstances, Department of School Education has initiated a flagship programme ‘Tholimettu/ First Step’ at the primary level in the state of Telangana in partnership with ‘Central Square Foundation’, a voluntary organization for improving basic literacy & numeric competencies to achieve class-wise learning outcomes from the academic year 2022-23.

Accordingly, the State Council of Educational Research and Training has prepared model
annual, unit/lesson plans and daily period plans for teachers and work books for children, keeping
in view of their work load for 1 to 5. Utilizing these, the teachers are expected to make the teaching
and learning processes meaningful and students to participate actively and make their learning joyful.

Teachers can discuss these plans in school complex meeting, conduct demonstration lessons
and moderate plans as per their need to gain more expertise in their respective subjects. Based on
those, teaching and learning processes can be organized objectively in terms of planning in professional capacity development.

The team members of ‘Central Square Foundation’ who participated in the design of handbooks
from the beginning of the ‘Tholimettu’ program till today are acknowledged for their coordination
and commendable work.

We believe that ‘Tholimettu’ programme will be a milestone in the advancement of quality
education and all students will be able to achieve the learning outcomes prescribed for their level.

Mathematics instruction is for 90 minutes a day.
 In the first 45 minutes the teacher makes the students understand the concepts of the topic. Basically it’s a teaching time. Children should practice during the second 45 minutes. This is considered as practice time. The workbook should be used effectively by motivating the children to solve problems individually.
Keep this in mind, divide the time of 90 minutes and conduct the teaching and learning process every day.

iii) Activities for conceptual understanding 25 min.
iv) Problem solving 10 min.
