Module Overview:

In this module students will use the words zero, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, and ten. Students will represent numbers in multiple ways and with movement. Students will add one and two-digit numbers with a sum less than 20. Students will also fill containers using smaller containers of different sizes. Students will practice identifying shapes.

Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 Number Words: One to Ten To extend this lesson, get out a deck of cards. Have your student get a pencil and a piece of paper. Flip over a card. Have your student write the number word that represents the number on the card.
2 Represent Numbers To extend this lesson pull out the deck of cards again. Give your student and yourself a piece of paper and a pencil. Get a timer or use the timer on a phone. Put the cards in the middle of the table. Flip over a card. Set the timer for 1 minute. Both you and your student have 1 minute to show as many representations of the number on the card as possible. The person who comes up with the most representations wins the round. Note: If 1 minute is too much time cut the time to 30 seconds. Repeat these steps for as many cards as you choose.
3 Double-Digit Addition Practice column addition with your student using a deck of cards. Separate from a deck of cards, the face cards. Ace's are worth 1, and Jokers are 0. Have your student write in their Math notebooks for this activity. Get 2 index cards, and write on one tens, write on the other, ones. Mix up the cards. Flip-up two cards and put one on the tens index card just underneath the word tens. Put the second card on the ones index card just underneath the word ones. The cards should be next to each other to represent a double-digit number. Flip-up one more card and put it below the other card that is in the ones column. Have your student write the addition problem in their notebook and solve it. For example, the first two cards flipped are an Ace and a 5 that makes 15. The third card is a 6. So the addition problem they would write is 15 + 6.
4 Shape Shades Extend this lesson by having your student go outside with paper and pencil and record how many shapes they see outside.

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

  1. Can you read the number words for 1 to 10?
  2. Can you spell the number words for 1 to 10?
Represent Numbers
  1. How many ways can you represent a number?
Double-Digit Addition
  1. What are some ways you can add double digit numbers?
Shape Shades

  2. How many sides and corners does a circle have?
  3. How many sides and corners does a square have?
  4. How many sides and corners does an octagon have?
  5. How many sides and corners does a rectangle have?

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

  1. What shapes do you see in this video?
  2. Draw the shapes you see in your Math Notebook.

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?
