Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In today's lesson, the student read Chapter 3 of "Flat Stanley," a book we started during the last tutoring session. He did pretty well at reading, though would often say a word wrong and fly right through it, without recognizing his mistake unless I pointed it out or asked him to try again. When I did this, he was usually able to correct himself. Throughout the story, I asked him comprehension questions, most of which he was able to answer correctly. I had him write about the problem that happened at the end of the story. His handwriting was pretty neat and he answered the question about half right, though he added details from the beginning of the chapter that did not relate to the problem. I want to keep working with him on comprehension. We also did some flashcards of sight words. Out of about 100 sight words, he missed the following words, but was able to say them correctly after a second or third try: word, ring, saw, want, leg, away, ate and came. We ended the session working on words with suffixes."
"We continued with the Bob books and read from the student's favorite books brought from home. We focused on words with a silent e at the end."
"Took turns reading chapters from a book. Practiced reading a passage and answering questions concerning it."
