Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We worked on the unit 5 vocab and his double entry journal. We also did an opinion-based questionnaire to discuss the main themes of Romeo and Juliet. He will be reading act 1 scene 1 and scene 2 for next week."
"Today, we worked on the student's reading homework. We read the names and the sounds of letters, mixed up in a row, to get warmed up. We worked on her weekly sight words as well. The student and I sounded out the words together the first time, and she did them on her own the second time. Next, we talked about the letter "h," which was the theme of her homework. We made a list of all the "h" words we could think of, then colored her "h" search page. After this, we talked about what verbs were and practiced picking out verbs in a sentence. She would act out the verb and then we would circle the verb in a sentence. We finished the session by reading "The Best Thing About Kindergarten" together. After the story, she told me about and drew her favorite thing about kindergarten (which is circle time!)."
"The student worked on her alphabet. She wrote out both capital and lowercase letters. We then reviewed sounds and words using puffy stickers I brought for her. It's important to keep some routine but also important to introduce new ways to learn. She picks up on everything quickly. We also worked on the study cards with various words and letters. Some of them included the use of two letters together such as ck and tr. We also reviewed making long vowel sounds by having the letter followed by a consonant and then followed by the letter e. We also worked on recognizing silent letters such as those found in colors like white, orange, and blue. Excellent session. The student is enthusiastic about learning."
