Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

The student read a short-a reading pyramid with me. She reread The Wet Pup. We focused on the short-u sound in our word work and she read Rub-a-Dub Cub to reinforce the sound. We played a sight word game. We did some more practice with short vowel sounds in a workbook.

We reviewed the sight words and removed the ones she knows well. We read 3 stories. She did well for the most part. We did some phonemic awareness drills, she did very well with those.

The student and I worked on vowel sounds. Overall she knows the differences among the sounds. We also worked on the consonants. We focused on changing the vowel sounds and creating new words. She got 14/14 on her spelling test.

The student did a rhyming matching game. He did really well with this. Then we read a book that had sight words and phonics. He put together a puzzle with the letters of the alphabet in alphabetical order. He did much better on this. He was able to identify more letters than before. I am very proud of his improvement in this area. Then we read the ABC book by Dr. Seuss. At the end the student did a handwriting activity and reading game on my iPad.

Student A:
1. Letter and sound recognition review: Hh and Ii
2. Concept of numbers review
3. Connect the dots 1-10
4. Tracing and coloring activity: Square (Handwriting Without Tears)

Student B:
1. Reading Homework assignment
2. Math Workbook Homework: Money
*To further review concept, we played pretend store. I gave him some change to use to buy some items from my pretend store. He really enjoyed doing the activity.
3. Reading Comprehension practice: I gave him a short story to read, then asked him a couple of questions about it to answer.

The student's teacher sent home a packet to be completed that prepares students for a test. He and I reviewed a couple pages that related to reading. We also played rhyming match.

The student did really well today. She mastered the sounds, and placement of sounds, in CVC words I gave her, with short "a" and short "o", and was able to transfer the skills to a new list, with short "u". Very happy with her readiness to learn and her retention. We worked on procedural listening skills, which she was able to demonstrate, and sustain for about 40 minutes.

The student completed the books on snakes and reviewed the vocabulary. I gave him an assignment on synonyms and story elements. We went through phonics review of /sh/ /sc/ /st/ sounds with rhyming matches.

The student and I reviewed th, sh and ch. I wanted to make sure that she is comfortable and confident with those digraphs. We read some more words and added them to her list. We also spent a lot of time coloring, writing and doing pages in the workbook. Lastly, we read a story about Tallulah and Her Tutu. The student is getting better at identifying and reading words like "hush" that have ending digraphs, instead of beginning digraphs (like "thin"). She is also showing me her good pre-K handwriting, instead of just scribbling. The student is still working on saying "th", instead of "thu". This skill is making it hard for her to decode some words. The student has no extra practice, and I have no concerns!

We read through some sight words, worked on the hard and soft c sounds, and consonant blends and digraphs. She is showing improvement and becoming more confident.

We worked on speed and accuracy of recognition of sight words. We also worked on reading fluency as well as decoding words.

Reviewed three letter consonant blends and hard and soft C and G. Introduced verb and verb tenses-action and linking verbs. Completed two reading comprehension activities.
