Lesson #  Lesson Title  Notes 

1  Count to 39  Extend this lesson by challenging your student to a 39 steps challenge. Ask your student to find points in a classroom or home that take 39 steps to get there. For example, from the kitchen to the bathroom, or from the living room to the hallway, or the teacher’s desk to the classroom door, etc. 
2  The Half Hour  Have an analog clock available for your student to use when practicing telling time. Every half hour, ask your student what time it is. 
3  Group by 10's  Extend this activity by getting your student a pack of M & M’s or skittles. Search online for printable ten frames and print out a page that has multiple ten frames on it. Please have your student place one piece of candy on each square of a ten frame until their pack is empty. Have them count by ten to see how many candies were in their pack. 
4  Creating Shapes  In this lesson, your student will use toothpicks to make shapes. Challenge your student to see how many shapes they can make out of toothpicks. Make an art project out of it by having your student glue the toothpick shapes on paper and paint different colors of toothpicks. 
Module Guiding Questions:
When a student starts a lesson ask them questions to check for prior knowledge and understanding and to review concepts being taught. At the end of the lesson ask the questions again to see if their answer changes.
