Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 Word Problems For the activity sheet in this lesson, please encourage your student to write their answers to the word problems in complete sentences.
2 Tens & Ones On page 3 of this lesson, your student will need the activity sheet printed or in their workbook to go along with the slides on the lesson page. To extend Symmetry, have your student fold a piece of paper in half. Have them draw a picture, starting it along the fold of the paper, such as half a heart, butterfly, triangle, circle, etc. Have them take scissors and cut their object out, keeping the paper folded. Be sure they do not cut along the fold itself. Unfold the paper to see the whole object.
3 Reading a Scale If you have one, get a digital scale or kitchen scale for your student to use. Have them weigh different objects around the classroom or house.
4 Subtraction Facts of 14 Either purchase at a dollar store or make your own using index cards, subtraction flash cards. Make it part of your daily math routine with your student to review the subtraction facts daily by showing them the cards and having them say 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. To extend the even and odd lesson, put likes groups of objects together. Have your student count each group and state whether there is an odd or even number of objects in each group.

Module Guiding Questions:
