Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During today's tutoring session, the student read the first chapter of two different books. He did well reading both books, struggling on some words, but able to sound out most of them with a little help or guidance. I asked the student a few questions about the book (ex. making predictions about what would happen next, why certain things happened in the story, etc.) and he was able to provide thoughtful answers to these questions. After reading, the student completed two worksheets that had him circle and write words that were in past tense. The student flew through the first worksheet, correctly circling all of the words that were in the past tense. I also had him read all of the words on the paper. On the second worksheet, the student had to write words in their past tense form. He was able to write about three fourths of the words correctly on his own, but needed some assistance to get the patterns for other words down. Once i pointed out the rules and how the words should be, the student was able to correctly write other words in the past tense that followed the same rule. We finished off the lesson going through our sight word flash cards. Out of 108 sight words, the student got all of them right, only hesitating/self-correcting two of the words. The student was pretty focused today and overall did a great job."
"The student and I finished reading a book about pirates. I then had him work on some reading comprehension worksheets and then had him write about his favorite food and his brother. We then read a book about Toy Story."
"Worked on short "o" and "u" words. Found 3 letter words with bananagram tiles. Then took the words and put them into sentences. Also played memory."
