Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 Fact Families & Volume For the volume activity worksheet, the steps for the activity are in the lesson. Your student will need to refer to the lesson while they complete the worksheet.
2 Count to 59 Extend this activity by having your student look at groups of objects and sort them by common traits.
3 Tally Charts Extend this lesson by having your student tally items in a refrigerator or snack drawer. Have them write the categories they will tally, for example, apples, oranges, or fruits and vegetables, and then record their count with tally marks. Compare the data they collected.
4 Subtraction Facts of 13 & Count to 69 Either purchase at a dollar store or make your own using index cards subtraction flash cards. Make it part of your daily math routine with your student to review the subtraction facts daily by showing them the cards and having them say the answers. For every answer they get correct, they get the card. Make it their goal to collect all of the cards. When they have reached a point where they know all of the facts, make it a speed contest, time how long it takes them to go through all of the facts, challenge them to beat their time each day.
5 Venn Diagrams Ask your student to explain what a Venn diagram is and how to make one.
