Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"For today's session I had the student read kindergarten readers that focused on short "a" and short "i" plus "f". From there we moved onto practicing his sight words - the ones he struggles with. Moving forward I discussed with the student's mom that we would sort the sight words by spelling and sounds - all the wh words, all the th words, etc., to help him visualize the differences and help him learn to read them."
"The student spent time on consonant blends and matching with short vowels. She also worked on sight words in an attempt to improve her recognition and fluency. She is reading a book, "Little Bear," that is helping her improve her fluency. We went over three sentence dictations that helped with her spelling and punctuation. The student has a positive attitude."
"The student and I started our tutoring session by playing the letter bingo game to assess his progress in letter identification. He is now able to identify all of the letters. Then we practiced telling time to the hour. We did a few pages in his phonics books that had him identify the beginning sounds in words. He did very well with this. We also read a book that had the word "the" in it, so I taught him a song to teach him how to remember how to spell "the." We reviewed number identification, counting, and practiced writing numbers."
