Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 Twelve: Addition Facts Extend this lesson by having your student organize and tally items around the house or classroom. They can count their school supplies and provide a tally for the number of pencils, crayons, markers, etc.
2 Count to 29 In this lesson, in addition to counting to 29 your student will also learn how to use a thermometer. If possible, get a real thermometer to put outside. Have your student check the temperature during different times of the day for a week to see if there is a pattern in temperature change. For example, is it cooler in the morning, afternoon, or evening?
3 Weight To extend this lesson, have your student use a kitchen scale or balance scale to weigh different objects around the house or classroom.
4 Minuends Less Than 10 Extend the sequencing portion of this lesson by having your student write a comic strip showing the sequence of their typical day.

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.

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?
