Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 Coin Designs To extend this lesson, grab real coins for your student to look at and compare. Have them identify the features they learned about in the lesson for each coin. Hand a random group of coins to your student, and have them try to count their value, help them if needed.
2 Eleven, Twelve, Thirteen In this lesson, your student will be directed to make a game to play. The directions are in the lesson, be sure to play the game after it is created. Extend the number recognition portion of this lesson by writing the numbers 1-13 and the number words 1-3 in random places on a piece of paper. Give your student a bingo dabber (these are available at most dollar stores) or use a marker. Call out a number, have your student use the bingo dabber to blackout the number word and numeral on their paper that matches what you called out. Monitor what your student is doing to make sure they are getting the correct number.
3 The Nearest Centimeter For this lesson, your student will need a ruler that has centimeters on it. If you do not have a ruler, you can search for one online and print one for them to use.
4 Addition Facts to 18 Either purchase at a dollar store or make your own using index cards, addition flashcards. Make it part of your daily math routine with your student to review the addition 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.
