Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 Skip Counting This week, before you start each lesson, review skip counting. Have your student count by 1’s, 2’s, 3’s, 5’s, and 10’s. See if they can get to 100 for each skip counting series.
2 Putting Numbers in Order In this lesson, your student will need to print number cards, cut them out, and practice putting them in order. Have them repeat this activity until they do it correctly. If they continually make errors review number order with them and make this a daily math activity until they get it right.
3 Making Number Sentences In this lesson, your student will be drawing a number line. If it helps them search for a printable number line on the internet, print it for them to look at while they draw the number line.
4 Subtraction Facts of 15 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. To extend the even and odd lesson, put likes groups of objects together. Have your student count each group and state whether there is an odd or even number of objects in each group.

Module Guiding Questions:
