Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 Do You Have Enough? Extend this lesson by teaching your student how to play Monopoly. For this age, try Monopoly Junior because the game is quicker.
2 The Greatest Value Extend this lesson by getting a small dry erase board and marker. Write two sets of 2-digit numbers on the board. Have your student circle the greater number. Next, have them tell how many tens and ones are in each number.
3 The Least Extend this lesson by getting a small dry erase board and marker. Write two sets of 2-digit numbers on the board. Have your student circle the smallest number. Next, have them tell how many tens and ones are in each number.
4 Thirteen: Addition Facts If you have the opportunity, get some addition facts, flashcards. Flash them to your student to have them practice addition facts. To extend the lesson of capacity, get a variety of containers, and have your student predict which will hold more. Have them fill the containers with water and then use a large measuring cup to measure how much each container held.
5 The Nearest Inch In this lesson, your student will need a ruler to measure objects around the house or classroom. Extend the activity by having them measure more than the suggested items.
