Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 Probability Extend this lesson more by getting a penny and showing your students heads and tails. Ask them what they think the probability is of flipping heads or tails on a penny. Get a piece of paper and have your student write heads on one side and tails on the other. Have your student flip the coin and record what side it lands on. Have them flip the coin 10 times recording the outcome. Discuss the findings.
2 Number Sentences In the Word Problem Activity, challenge your student to write their answers to each word problem using a complete sentence.
3 Group by 10's Extend this activity by collecting dimes around your house and having your student count to see how much money you have in dimes by counting by tens.
4 Fourteen: Addition Facts & Count to 49 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 saying 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.
