Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 Eleven and Comparing Length In the lesson activity, your student will be asked to compare the lengths of different school supplies. Help them gather a variety of supplies to compare, such as a crayon, pencil, glue stick, scissors, etc.
2 Adding Pairs In one of the interactive lesson activities, your student will use dominoes online. Dominoes are excellent math manipulatives; it may be helpful to have real dominos on hand in the house. You can extend the activity by getting out the real dominos and playing a game of war with them. Deal out two dominos one to you and one to your student. The person with the highest number keeps the dominos. The one with the most at the end wins. Another game you can play is to find the matching sums. Place the dominos face up randomly on a table. Have your student look for dominoes that have the same sum. For example, four dots and one dot on one domino, and three dots with two dots, they both equal 5, they would be a match. Time how long it takes for your student to match sums and play again, trying to beat their time.
3 Twelve and Logic Puzzles To extend this lesson, search online for kid’s logic puzzles and have your student try some more puzzles.
4 Count It! To continue practicing skip counting by 2’s, give your student objects such as pennies, nickels, or other coins to count in groups of 2 by 2’s to see how many there are total.
5 Position Words
  • Extend this lesson by playing a game of Simon Says. Direct your student to follow Simon’s directions using the position words from the lesson.
  • Module 3 Synchronous Session: When your student finishes this module, they will meet with their teacher to review the concepts taught in the module. The teacher will give the student a grade based on their discussion on what was learned and their work that demonstrates their knowledge of the concepts. A rubric for the synchronous session is shown in the module synchronous session assignment.
