Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Began the session with Sight word Bingo and then read a story from school. He read the stories and then we went back and covered the pictures in order to encourage the student to read the words. He was able to read without support demonstrating he is becoming more comfortable. We played memory with the previous 10 sight words. He had to say the words as he turned them over. We then read the sight word story She Will Be and reviewed sight words throughout the book. Then we read the decodable book The Pin and Fin. This book covers word families -in and -et. We highlighted these word families and focused on the sight words in the story. He is becoming a more confident reader and self correcting. Lastly, we played a new memory game with 10 new words. He continues to improve and gain confidence. I left the books for him to read and ten additional words for mom to add around the house."
"We worked on reading and spelling words. While he often looks for help when encountering an unfamiliar word, he is able to decode and sound out the word when prompted."
"During this session we went over his reading/language arts homework. There was a packet of about 10 pages that we had to work through on a variety of words and sounds. I told him to look at the page and tell me what he thought he was expected to do based on what he saw. We then worked through each section, with him reading aloud the sentence and filling in the blanks with the correct word or selecting the correct answer from a list. The student need a great deal of help with consonant blends, long vowel sounds, and remembering words he's just read as well as overall fluency. I recommended he continue practicing his sight words and read at least 10-15 min a day."
