Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 Ten: Addition Facts In this lesson, your student will be asked to use small objects to practice adding using a ten frame. The ten frames are included in the activity. The objects can be M&M's, skittles, beans, or some other small objects that fit in the spaces on the ten-frame mat in the activity.
2 Pattern Finder Extend this lesson by using the small objects used for the ten frames in lesson 1. Create patterns with the objects and have your student identify and complete the patterns.
3 Coins! In this lesson, your student will cut out coins to work with. If you have real coins, pull them out when the student is finished with the lesson and have your student identify and count the coins you have. Have them practice adding different combinations of coins.
4 Nonstandard Measurements In this lesson, your student will need to pick a nonstandard unit of measurement to complete the activity. To extend this lesson, have them pick more than one nonstandard unit of measurement to measure various objects and compare their measurements.

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.
