any tips?

Is this part of an integrated curriculum? Are you going to be teaching math in English? Are you responsible for the entire math curriculum for 1st grade?

I think you can just take a look at the curriculum and that will guide you as to what they need to be able to say in English. So, if they are working with numbers and shapes in the beginning, then you can design a class around that target language. If they are practicing simple addition, then your class could introduce language necessary for them to do the same in English.

I know this post is now a couple months old. Sorry for the late reply, but how have the classes been going? What did you end up doing?
