Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 3.1 Letter Tt
  • 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.
  • As your student reads, “What Can Mom See?” ask them the following questions: What are the things that mom saw? Draw a picture of your favorite part.
  • While your student is practicing writing the letter Tt have them say out loud the letter and the sound it makes each time they write the letter.
  • During Independent Reading time, listen to your kindergartner read the story they chose out loud so that you can hear errors and correct them if needed.
2 3.2 Letter Tt
  • Remember to use the sight word flashcards daily from lesson 1 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 listen to your kindergartner read the story they chose out loud so that you can hear errors and correct them if needed.
  • Have your student refer to the Hand Story Retell Poster to help them with their story retell recording.
  • As your student reads the story: "What can Mom See?" have your student point out the quotation marks as they read the story.

  • As your student practices writing sight words have them spell the words as they write each letter in the word and then read the word when they are done writing it.
  • During Independent Reading time listen to your kindergartner read the story they chose out loud so that you can hear errors and correct them if needed.

  • As your student does activities throughout the day, have them discuss the order they did the activity. For example, if they went outside and played basketball, what steps did they follow to shoot a basket? If they made a snack, what steps did they follow to make a snack? Have them tell you the steps in the correct order that they followed to do that activity.
  • During Independent Reading time, listen to your kindergartner read the story they chose out loud so that you can hear errors and correct them if needed.
5 3.5 Letter Tt
  • On page 2 of this lesson, it mentions an Independent Reading Quiz. This only applies to students who are enrolled in a school that uses an Independent Reading program online where they take a quiz on the book they chose to practice for the week. If your school does not have this program and your student is reading books on their own, then this would be the time to fill out their Independent Reading Log and answer the questions. The Independent Reading Log can be found in the Resources Module, In the "What is the Independent Reading Program?" Activity on page 3. Have your student complete their independent reading log and submit it at the Independent Reading Assignment lesson dropbox. You may have to help them fill it out. They can record themselves reading their Independent Reading Book by clicking on the record option in their dropbox if they are directed to do so in the assignment.
  • Remember to have your student submit their work for the week in the Module 3 Weekly Written Work Letter Tt lesson dropbox.
