"We discussed the content of his most recent vocabulary quiz. He was able to bring his workbook home, and we reviewed it together. He did not provide any scores or grades, but he confirmed that he had incorrectly answered 1 question out of 5 total on his last vocabulary quiz.
We reviewed the format of the average vocabulary quiz together in order to confirm what aspects of the assigned vocabulary words would be tested on. According to him, the teacher assigns specific definitions, synonyms, antonyms, and accent notations to be reviewed since they are all possible sources for the questions. In addition, the teacher requires that the students write a sentence using the assigned vocabulary words.
He expressed that he was not able to correctly answer all of the questions even after reviewing the workbook multiple times. Although only one aspect of each word would be quizzed on through the questions vs all aspects of each word, he was not able to easily answer all of the questions.
Therefore, since he had only been reading and reviewing the vocabulary, I asked him to write out all of the essential components of the vocabulary words on a separate piece of paper as a new way to remember the vocabulary by next week's session. I asked him to write out the definition, synonym, antonym, accent notations, and an original sentence for the next 5 words by next week, based upon what was specifically required by his teacher.
We spent the last 30 minutes discussing the basics of cursive writing. I provided a sample handout of the alphabet in both lower and upper case written in cursive. Then I asked him to observe my directions on how to properly write the uppercase letters of G, S, and Z. These were preselected based upon level of difficulty. I gave him three worksheets that were based on each letter that needed to be completed by next week's session."
