Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 14.1 Letter Pp
  • In this module, your student will use paint to paint the letter Pp and their sight words. You can extend this by asking them to paint other words that start with Pp. They can sound the words out, or you can help them spell the words they think of.
  • Use the sight word flashcards daily 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.
  • As your student reads “Hidden Food,” ask them the following questions: What foods do you see in the freezer? What foods do you see in the refrigerator? Draw a picture of your favorite part.
  • While your student is practicing writing the letter Pp 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 14.2 Letter Pp
  • 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.

  • On page 2 of this lesson, it mentions an Independent Reading Quiz. This only applies to students who are enrolled in a school that uses an Independent Reading program online where they take a quiz on the book they chose to practice for the week. If your school does not have this program and your student is reading books on their own, then this would be the time to fill out their Independent Reading Log and answer the questions. The Independent Reading Log can be found in the Resources Module, In the "What is the Independent Reading Program?" Activity on page 3. Have your student complete their independent reading log and submit it at the Independent Reading Assignment lesson dropbox. You may have to help them fill it out. They can record themselves reading their Independent Reading Book by clicking on the record option in their dropbox if they are directed to do so in the assignment.
  • Remember to have your student submit their work for the week in the Module 14 Weekly Written Work Letter Ii lesson dropbox.
