Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 35.1 Tell Time - 5 Minutes At various points of the day ask your student to tell what time it is.
2 35.2 Symmetry Draw a variety of shapes and have your student draw the lines of symmetry for those shapes.
3 35.3 Creating Shapes Take turns making different images out of pattern blocks with your student. When finished, have your student identify and count the types of shapes they see in the images made by both of you.
4 35.4 Splitting Shapes Have your student draw a circle, a square, a triangle, and a rectangle in their Math notebook. Then have them partition each shape into halves or fourths.
5 35.5 Patterns In their Math notebook, have your student create an AB pattern, an AABB pattern, an ABB pattern, an AAB pattern, an ABC pattern, and an ABCD pattern.

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
35.1 Tell Time - 5 Minutes
  1. Can you tell time by 5 minutes?
35.2 Symmetry
  1. What is symmetry?
35.3 Creating Shapes
  1. What are pattern blocks?
35.4 Splitting Shapes
  1. What is a fraction?
35.5 Patterns
  1. What is a pattern?

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
35.1 Tell Time - 5 Minutes Time by 5 at the Beehive
  1. How much is each number worth on a clock?
  2. How does counting by 5's help you tell time?
35.2 Symmetry Line of Symmetry
  1. What is a line of symmetry?
35.4 Splitting Shapes Play Dough Shapes
  1. How many pieces are in your circle when you cut it in half?
  2. How many pieces are in your circle when you cut it in fourths?

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?
