Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I began the session by playing the vocabulary board game. He was able to read all the words with a short vowel sound. We then read a step 2 book, and he had a good voice inflection, and his fluency was noticeably better. While reading the book, he attempted to decode unfamiliar words. I asked his what types of vowels the words contained. We ended the session by building words using different endings. He did a good job. In the future, I think we will work on multi-syllable/compound words, and words that have 2 vowels next to each other."
"In this session, the student read one chapter each in two different Captain Underpants books. He did well sounding out the words/decoding. I asked him questions to have him predict what would happen in the story, as well as to tell why characters did different things in the story and what was going on, and he was able to give good responses. We finished the session working with the past progressive tense. I reviewed the past progressive tense with him, and then he worked on two handouts that provided practice with this. On the first worksheet, he circled the word or phrase that was in the past progressive form. On the second worksheet, he wrote sentences in the past progressive tense. He did very well on both worksheets, getting all of the questions right. After we completed these, I told him sentences and quizzed him verbally to see if it was written correctly, and if not, how should the sentence be (ex. "We was going to the movies," should be "We were going to the movies.")."
"We worked on section 1 of her social studies chapter; she read and took notes. We worked on reading comprehension with short passages and extended answer questions. We will continue working on reading comprehension."
