Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 Expanded Form Write a variety of numbers on index cards. Show them to your student and have them rewrite the numbers in expanded form.
2 Rounding to Hundreds and Thousands In this lesson have your student complete the practice activity first before looking at the answer key. Be sure to monitor this. When they check their answers using the key have them circle what they got wrong and talk about why they got it wrong and make corrections.
3 Hundreds Chart In their Math notebook have your student describe how to use a hundreds chart to help them round numbers.
4 Comparison In this lesson have your student complete the practice activity first before looking at the answer key. Be sure to monitor this. When they check their answers using the key have them circle what they got wrong and talk about why they got it wrong and make corrections
5 Adding Two Whole Numbers In this lesson have your student complete the practice activity first before looking at the answer key. Be sure to monitor this. When they check their answers using the key have them circle what they got wrong and talk about why they got it wrong and make corrections.
6 Adding Several Whole Numbers In this lesson have your student complete the practice activity first before looking at the answer key. Be sure to monitor this. When they check their answers using the key have them circle what they got wrong and talk about why they got it wrong and make corrections.
7 Re-grouping In their Math notebook have your student write down the steps for regrouping when adding.
8 Subtraction Skills In this lesson have your student complete the practice activity first before looking at the answer key. Be sure to monitor this. When they check their answers using the key have them circle what they got wrong and talk about why they got it wrong and make corrections.
9 Subtracting Word Problems In their Math notebook have your student write the steps used to solve subtraction word problems.
10 Subtraction with Zeros In their Math notebook have you student write the steps involved in subtracting with zeroes. Give your student some practice problems to practice using the steps.

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.
