Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student completed a phonics assessment to record his progress up to this point. In some areas he did a great job at solving words, showing evidence that he remembers rules of phonics. I was also able to find some weaknesses that I retaught and recorded. The sounds he had trouble with were "or", "er", "ir", "ur", and "ar". He also had problems with "ea" and "oa" sounds."
"The student started the third grade assessment packet which is solely reading fluency passages. We are working on blending words and sounding them out so we can read more accurately. We also reviewed vowel teams ai, ee, and ea. We briefly touched on Cause and Effect and will focus more on this reading comprehension strategy."
"We started off reading a book he had not read before, so I could see his reading improvement. We then worked on flash cards focusing on sh, ch, th, ck, and other sounds. Then we created words with the flash cards and looked for words with those sounds in several books. He is going to continue practicing the flashcards and creating words himself, with his parents. I received a list of words from his school and I will be using those words and the sounds he was struggling with to create some worksheet activities for practice next session. I was informed that his teacher has already seen an improvement."
