Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 12.1 Letter Ll
  • In this module, your student will be instructed to collect leaves. They will write Ll on leaves and also their sight words. As they read the words, they will toss them in the air and leap. Extend this activity by having them write words that start with Ll. You will need to help them with this.
  • Gather the sight word flashcards from modules 7-11. 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 “Lemons and Limes,” ask them the following questions: What did the girl make with the lemons? What did the boy make with the limes? Draw a picture of your favorite part.
  • While your student is practicing writing the letter Ll have them say out loud the letter and the sound it makes each time they write the letter.
2 12.2 Letter Ll
  • 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.
  • Use the Hand Story Retell Poster to help your student with their story retell recording.
3 12.3 Letter Ll
  • As your student practices writing sight words have them spell the words as they write each letter in the word and then read the word when they are done writing it.
  • 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.
4 12.4 Letter Ll 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. After they read their story, have them tell you what happened in the beginning, middle, and end of the story.
5 12.5 Letter Ll
  • 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 12 Weekly Written Work Letter Ll lesson dropbox.
