"Summer Reading Project. Reading the book So Much Closer. Reading Comprehension and Vocabulary while reading chapters. Overview of Math section in practice test."
"Today I brought supplementary material to add to the practice book we have been working in. It turns out that the student's mom had already printed an ISEE practice test directly from the makers, and I find that this is a much more realistic representation of the test. We went through verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, and mathematics achievement in this practice test. The student found this test much less challenging than the ones that she had been taking in her practice book. She did especially well with the verbal and quantitative reasoning. We also went over the essay. We read an example of a great essay and talked about the pros and cons. She and I also worked on the reading section in the original test booklet. She did very well in this section as well and is feeling much more confident about the exam."
"We worked on Reading Comprehension and Quantitative Reasoning, and did a bit of a review. Vocabulary remains our major emphasis before the test."
