Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 26.1- r-controlled vowels: er, ir, and ur
  • Your student will start write three questions for a research topic s/he would like to learn about and write about. Your student needs to have a topic chosen to research.
  • As your student reads “The Birthday Party" have them answer the following questions: How many friends are coming to the Birthday Party? What do they have to drink at the party? What gifts were given at the party? What is for dessert at the party? In their Language Arts notebook have your student draw a picture of their favorite part of the story and write about it using their spelling and sight words.
  • Use the sight word flashcards daily with your student. Mix them up, show them the words and ask them to read the sight word. Next do not show them the word but say the word and ask them to spell the word.
  • During Independent Reading time have your First Grader read the story they chose out loud so that you can hear errors and correct them if needed.
2 26.2- r-controlled vowels: er, ir, and ur
  • There will be no formal handwriting worksheets assigned during this semester. However, if you believe your student still needs more work or practice with handwriting, please visit the Teacher Guide for handwriting resources to implement on your own.
  • Your student will be practicing writing his/her sight words in paint today. Help your student follow the directions below for this activity. 1. Put some sort of liquid paint (Tempera Paint, any color) in a clear plastic baggy that seals tightly. 2. Seal baggy tightly. 3. Lay the baggy with paint inside flat and spread out the paint evenly inside the baggy. 4. With a Q-Tip, practice writing each of your sight words at least five times each. (see image example in the actual lesson)
3 26.3- r-controlled vowels: er, ir, and ur
  • Your student will be playing “Memory” to practice his/her spelling words in this lesson. Have your student write this week’s spelling words twice each on index cards. Flip them over and play “Memory” with a partner. When a match is made, spell the word out loud.
  • When reading "The Birthday Party" in this lesson have your student write the r-controlled vowel words that are in the story in their Language Arts notebook.
  • During Independent Reading time have your First Grader read the story they chose out loud so that you can hear errors and correct them if needed.
