Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 15.1 Letter Rr
  • In this module, your student will be asked to write the Letter Rr and their sight words in rainbow colors. Encourage your student to think of other words that start with Rr and to sound them out and write them in rainbow colors or help them spell them as they write them.
  • 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 “What Am I?” ask them the following questions: What words started with the letter R in this story? Draw a picture of your favorite part.
  • While your student is practicing writing the letter Rr have them say out loud the letter and the sound it makes each time they write the letter.
  • 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.

  • 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 15 Weekly Written Work Letter Ii lesson dropbox.
