Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 29.1 Compare Weights Get a variety of objects and have your student compare which ones are heavier.
2 29.2 Graphing Get candy such as a pack of skittles or M and M's and have your student sort them by color. Ask them to create a bar graph showing the data they collected in their Math notebook.
3 29.3 Sorting Letters Have your student create a 3 column chart in their math notebook. The titles of the columns should be curved lines, straight lines, and both. Have them sort all of the upper case and lowercase letters of the alphabet into each column based on which category they fit in.
4 29.4 Estimating Time As your student goes throughout their day have them estimate how much time passes between transitions. For example, when did they start Math, when did it end? How much time passed?
5 29.5 Mental Subtraction Have your student record the strategies they learned to mentally subtract.

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.

Module Video Questions:

When a student watches a video take time to ask them questions about what they watched. Suggested questions for the videos in this module are listed here. Suggestion: Have the student watch the entire video first all the way through. Then have them watch the video a second time, as they watch it pause the video and ask the questions.

Lesson Title Video Question

  1. What letters in the video had curved lines?
  2. What letters in the video had straight lines?
  3. What letters in the video had both curved and straight lines?
29.4 Estimating Time Firefighters to the Rescue
  1. How long did it take for the firefighters to put out the forest fire?
  2. How long does it take the firefighters to eat lunch?
  3. How long does it take Mateo to finish his paperwork?
29.5 Mental Subtraction In the Clouds

Module Suggested Read Aloud Books:

Take time to read to your student or have them read aloud to you. Read a different book each day. While reading the book point out concepts being taught. You may purchase these books or find them at your local library. Suggested things to discuss while reading the book:

  • What is the main idea?
  • What are three things new you learned?
  • How does this book relate to what you are learning about?
