"We started the lesson by reviewing the student's red folder for his assignments for the week. He also took out his spelling and math classwork packets that had been returned to him from the teacher. He and I reviewed his weekly assignments and developed an action plan for him to complete all the work. First he worked on his math homework, section G of Daily Review. He had completed the problems in class; I corrected it and found one mistake. He made the necessary corrections. Next he worked on his memory phrase.. Read, Write and Say. He completed this task, and he made only 3 mistakes when he recited the verse.
We then went on to reading for 20 minutes. He was starting a new book titled Big Nate. This book is written by the same author as Diary of a Wimpy Kid. The book is primarily written in comic book format, with quite a bit of dialogue. A recommendation is that the student vary his reading genres and authors this will help in vocabulary development and reading comprehension. I quizzed him as he read the book on the vocabulary he encountered and worked with him on pronunciation of words.
Finally we went through all graded classwork assignments. I had him correct his mistakes so he understood why he missed the problem. The math concept "period" value of a number gave him the most difficulty. I told him I would bring him some additional practice worksheets and charts to help him with the concept at our next lesson.
Wednesday, he is to study for a science quiz he will be having Thursday. I asked him if he had any study materials. He said they had been studying about insects, yet now they were studying about quails. I requested that he bring the science material that he needs to study to the next tutoring session."
