Math 45-60 Minutes
In grades K-3 Math, there are 18 modules. A student should complete 1 module a week, which could vary from 1 lesson a day to stretching out a lesson over a couple of days, depending on how many lessons are in each module.
At the beginning of the school year, you will want to guide your student through the lessons, especially if they are a Kindergartner or First Grader. If a student is not able to read the lessons, be sure to show them where they can click on the play button to have the content read aloud.
Before a student clicks onto the next page, ask the student to summarize what they learned from the page they did, or ask them questions about that page.
When a student plays an interactive game, watch for how many errors they make. Have them redo the game if they get a lot wrong.
When a student is watching a video, watch it with them. Ask them questions about what the video is teaching. Have them tell you about the video.
When a student encounters an Activity Button on a lesson page, have the student click on it to download and print the assignment; if you have a workbook direct the student to find the workbook page and complete it. When the student finishes the worksheet, have them submit the worksheet by scanning it and putting it in their dropbox when prompted to in the course (note: this is usually after the lesson).
At the end of each module is a quiz. If your student is a kindergartner, you may want to read the quiz questions and answer choices to the student until they can read the questions and answer choices on their own.
Lesson Notes (Grades 2-3):
In grades 2 and 3, students will be asked to download lesson notes. They are expected to fill out these notes as they go through the lessons in the module. The lesson will direct them when to fill out the notes. Be sure to guide the student and help them as they fill out the notes. Take time to discuss with them the content of the notes. When prompted in the course, the student will submit their notes for a grade. Please Note Some notes the student will be able to type in, save, and then submit. Please refer to the Resources Module to learn how to type in and submit PDF documents.
Before or after a lesson, it will be good practice to play a math game that reinforces the concepts being taught for each lesson. There are many places to find math game ideas online. You can also refer to the Math Course Guide for your grade level for Math Game Ideas.
