1  Logical Order  To extend this lesson, have your student create a comic strip putting something they do or make in sequence. For example, getting ready for a sporting event, making a sandwich, setting up a game, etc. 
2  Dissecting Word Problems  To extend this lesson, reinforce following directions by playing a Simon Says game with your student. 
3  Number Lines & Repeating Patterns  To extend this activity, have your student use coins to create a pattern. Have them identify the kind of pattern they created. You can create patterns as well and ask your student to extend the patterns you create. 
4  Subtracting with a Number Line and Using Maps  Continue to practice using maps by taking your student on an outing that would have maps to help show how to get around, such as a zoo, museum, or nature trail. Have them use the map to guide you through the place. 
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.
