Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 2.1 Letter Bb
  • As your student reads “A Big Blue,” ask them the following questions: What does the author see? What does the bee see? What does the bug see? What does the butterfly see? What does the bird see? What does the bunny see? What does the beaver see? What does the bear see? Draw a picture of your favorite part.
  • While your student is practicing writing the letter Bb 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 2.2 Letter Bb
  • 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.
  • The student can refer to the Hand Story Retell Poster to help them with their story retell recording.
  • Brainstorm with your student words that rhyme. See how many words they can think of that rhyme.
3 2.3 Letter Bb
  • 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.
  • Practice naming rhyming words with your student. Say a word and have your student say a word that rhymes with the word you said. Repeat this multiple times using different words.
  • 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 2.4 Letter Bb 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 2.5 Letter Bb For the Module 2 Story setting activity 2.5, students will use their creativity to develop the setting of the story by drawing a picture. To assist the student with the setting, please first discuss the characters. Who or What do they see in the story? Once they form that idea, then you can talk with them about the setting. Explain a setting is where the story takes place (outside, inside, in a house, at a park, etc.). Ask the students where do you think the characters would live/be? Would they be in your bedroom? In a store? Or would they be outside? Once students have understood where they believe the characters would be in the story, they can draw their setting picture. The setting picture could be a forest, a park, a house, a store, etc. This will allow the students to visualize where the story took place based on using the information from the story about the characters. Making these connections will help emergent readers.
