Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 18.1 Letter Vv
  • For the Hands-on activity, students could write their letters and words on toy vehicles with a dry erase marker, or on index cards and tape them on toy vehicles. This is a review week, so there are no new spelling words assigned. Your student may practice any misspelled words from the last six weeks if you choose.
  • As your student reads “Eat Your Vegetables,” ask them the following question(s): What vegetable from the story was yellow? What vegetable from the story was red? What vegetable was brown? Draw a picture of your favorite part.
  • While your student is practicing writing the letter Vv 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 18.2 Letter Vv
  • 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 them identify the parts of the book as they read their independent reading book.
  • Use the Hand Story Retell Poster to help your student with their story retell recording.
3 18.3 Letter Vv
  • 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.
4 18.4 Letter Vv 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. After they read their story, have them tell you what happened in the beginning, middle, and end of the story and have them identify the setting of the story.

  • 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 Module 18 Weekly Written Work Letter Ii lesson dropbox.
