"The client is supposed to take the quiz today. Client learned how to make a flip book that will help him remember verbs and how to conjugate them. Client filled the flip book with frequently used verbs he would encounter in class. We used this opportunity to review "ser" vs. "estar" (two forms of "to be") and when to use them. Client then completed a worksheet that dealt with clothing vocabulary."
"This first session was a good opportunity for me to look through the student's notes and workbook to see what they have already worked on in his class as well as what topics and grammatical points they are focusing on now. I also questioned him on what he needs the most help with. His mother and I went over his report cards from previous quarters, which indicated some of the areas that he had trouble with in the past. We started off by going over verbs in the infinitive and then conjugating both regular ar/er/ir verbs into the present tense. He took notes and completed various worksheets that I created on the topic, such as crossword puzzles and the labeling of pictures with the correct verb that they depicted. There were a few verbs that he wasn't familiar with, but he learned them very quickly. He has a great understanding of the present tense. I also introduced him to a new topic: professions. The lesson included vocabulary related to professions as well as how to report and ask about one's profession. He completed various practice worksheets using the new vocabulary. He has a very good memory. This was the first time that he was exposed to this vocabulary and he was able to recall it with ease. I suggested to his parents that when studying vocabulary he should write the word three times each as well as make index cards for each new word. I even gave him a dictionary to help him. It was a great first session."
