"Today we went over more practice tests. There was one test that was from the student's practice assessment, but since it had relatively similar questions to the other assessment, we used it to get some practice. The student is improving quickly. If she looks back in the text only when it is necessary, and to answer questions she is strong at, she will be able to improve her score. She is a fast learner, but reading is a subject that requires a lot of practice since the material is always new. I have faith that she will remember the tricks we went over today to do well on the exam, but as always, it is important that she reads the questions carefully!"
"The student read two stories that I had brought and answered the corresponding questions. I gave him a homework assignment to write a short essay based on the story that we read. He also practiced antonyms, synonyms and vocabulary games online."
"The student was very focused and showed a lot of stamina today! He was so excited to edit and revise his persuasive letter to his friend! I supported him in self-correcting his spelling, and he read his writing aloud many times, making changes to make it flow better when read aloud. He excitedly discussed the faces that he imagined his friend would make, while reading his letter when he delivered it at school tomorrow. We practiced reading the letter fluently, and the student read it confidently with pride!"
