Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I have been working on phonemic awareness lately. We also worked on studying for her state test coming up soon. We went over some packets from school. We also went over sight word flash cards, and she is getting better at them. We then did a couple activities for phonemic awareness. We then read her book using the echo reading strategy so that she can hear a fluent reader and what the words should sound like."
"Today the student read a familiar text and an unfamiliar text to me. I then asked him questions about his understanding of the story. I reread the unfamiliar text to him to ensure comprehension. He has excellent comprehension. He is a hard worker and very focused."
"Met with the student to review how to blend sounds to form single and multi syllabic words. Multi-syllabic words included words with open and closed syllables as well as words with long vowel silent e, double medial consonants and single medial consonants. Informal assessment was continued from last week. Assessment results show he has made at least 20% growth or higher for reading single syllable words in list form. He continues to practice fluency by playing a hands on memory game and we continue to read his high interest low readability book. Next week we will continue to focus on reading multi-syllabic words in context and reading words in isolation with the various vowel patterns he has learned in his classroom. Incentive chart was given and four assignments left for him to practice his skills throughout the week."
