Session Summaries by Phonics Tutors

Bellevue, NE Phonics tutoring
The student and I met today and worked on writing and reading comprehension. He provided me with feedback from his teacher on his health paragraph. His teacher requested more substantive detail on his summary paragraph of the NPR piece on the sleep study. We listened to the story again on NPR and revisited his notes, pulling out two to three more relevant details to supplement the paragraph. I noted that his teacher had only had one comment on the writing and had not made any comments on his clarity or writing mechanics. I will take that as signs of improvement. With the rest of our time, he and I worked on A+. In grammar, we worked on adjectives again. In Reading comprehension, we did two units, cause and effect reasoning in writing and paraphrasing and summarizing. I thought the paraphrasing and summarizing was particularly relevant to his assignment and his teacher's feedback.

The student practiced his fluency first. He read a passage for one minute and we discussed how many words he said incorrectly and how many words he read total in a minute. Regarding fluency, instead of aiming for a higher number of words read in one minute, I had asked him to make sure that he is not skipping or changing words. We have discussed that this can change the meaning of what he is learning. After he graphed his fluency we discussed the difference between fact and opinion. We then discussed the elements of opinion writing. We played a game that involved matching reasons to the opinions that they support. We then finished our session by reading out of a chapter book called "I Survived." As we read, we discussed comprehension questions.

The student had several assignments from last week - to finish a short novel and answer some comprehension questions and to memorize a one-stanza poem. We talked about the book, and I asked him what he thought the theme was. I also gave him examples of other possible themes. We then reviewed the answers to the comprehension questions and again we talked about better ways to answer those questions as well. Finally, I gave him a grammar pre-test to see where he was. These are the areas that his dad wants me to focus on. His dad would like him to do more talking, and therefore we will be reading more and talking about what he's read. He is reading a book at school and he also has a copy at home. I will bring my copy and we will be reading and discussing the book when we meet next week. We will also continue to work on grammar as well.

First, I worked with Student 1 using a 6th grade resource workbook. He read 2 passages, annotated while reading, and answered the accompanying questions. He did well utilizing the strategies we've been creating together. For his writing response, he worked on two responses: one for constructing a text-to-self response and the other was an analysis of the character's changing feelings. We highlighted focus areas of topic sentence, transition words, and concluding sentence going forward. He did well. Then, I worked with Student 2 on a 5th grade passage (as he is in advanced reading in school). He did a good job reading a fiction passage, mapping the passage, using context clues, and answering the accompanying questions. We will continue working on the importance of slowing down to read questions more than once, proofreading our work, and using our strategies at school beyond just our tutoring sessions.

The student was working on homework for her religion class when I arrived, so we reviewed that. I then checked to see if she remembered how to change fractions into mixed numbers. After a refresher, she was able to do it independently. Next, I assessed her ability to make predictions, sequence, determine the author's purpose, find the main idea, and make inferences. I am writing a report to give to her mother regarding the skills and strategies in reading that we have covered and which she has mastered, along with recommendations for the future. We then went over fractions of a number (1/3 of 21, for example), a challenging area that we identified this summer. We finished up by hitting quickly on using quotations in writing, idioms, and text structures.

In this session, the student worked on a character traits project for his Humanities class. A checklist was completed to assist him with this project by notating the project handout given to him. The concept of character trait was reviewed with him by reminding him that a character's traits are identified through the character's words, evidenced through quotes, the character's actions, and/or a situation. Given a character, Little Bear, previously identified by him and the character traits, clever, brave, leader, annoyed, demanding, and obedient, he worked towards identifying words, actions, or situations that evidenced the character traits identified by him through the text. In this session, he worked on the character traits, obedient, brave, and annoyed. For "homework," he was left to complete the identification of evidence for the other three traits. We will continue work on this project in our session on tomorrow.
