Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 Missing Numbers In this lesson, your student will learn about identifying missing numbers in a sequence of numbers and cardinal directions. If possible, get a real compass for your student to use and have them take the compass with them on walks or when they are playing outside to identify which direction they are going.
2 Minuends Less than 8 In this lesson, your student will be asked to draw, use a ten frame, and write an equation for a given subtraction problem. Extend this lesson by using dice. Please have your student roll a pair of dice on a piece of paper have them write a subtraction equation showing what they rolled, then have them draw the subtraction equation by drawing sticks or circles, and finally put beans, coins, or other small counter objectives into a ten frame to demonstrate the subtraction problem.
3 Horizontal Numbers To extend this lesson, have your student create horizontal, vertical, and diagonal lines using their body. They can lay on the floor straight in the correct direction. Or they can use their arms and put them in each direction.

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.

Lesson Title Question
Missing Numbers
  1. What is a compass rose?
  2. What are the cardinal directions?
Minuends Less than 8
  1. What is a ten-frame?
  2. How can you subtract using a ten-frame?
Horizontal Numbers
  1. What does horizontal mean?
  2. What does vertical mean?
  3. What does diagonal mean?

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
Horizontal Numbers Horizontal,Diagonal, Vertical
  1. Which direction does the helicopter go if it moves up and down?
  2. Which direction does the helicopter go if it moves side to side?
  3. Which direction is the helicopter going if it moves on a slant?

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?
