"The student and I continued our work on spelling today, starting with an exercise meant to help her remember how to spell words she has seen before. We also focused on using the dictionary when she's in doubt about a word and on proofreading. She is quite good at finding words in the dictionary when she has an idea what the first two or three letters might be. I'm encouraging her to read as much as possible and maintain her journal five days a week. So far, she's doing well at the latter exercise, and her mom has given her a new book to read. The plan is to have her read and write whenever we meet so she can apply what she has learned and expand on her abilities in the other mechanics of writing, such as punctuation."
"The student and I spent this session covering the material for his presentation on Abraham Lincoln. We covered all the major parts of the presentation, including topics such as his posture, the topics he was going to talk about and the facts he was going to discuss. He seems well prepared and most of the information we covered, he had already prepared. It was simply a matter of organizing his material."
"The student and I went over writing fluency, sentence structure, and writing speed. The student is very smart and very hard working. He is starting to understand how to use transitional words and his writing fluency has improved greatly."
