Session Summaries by Reading Tutors

Connecticut, CT Reading tutoring
The student and I worked on reading his chapter book and using the reading journal. The journal is set up to track (by chapter) vocabulary, characters, key events and predictions. I reminded the student he needed to review each chapter in the journal, before starting the next chapter, to help improve comprehension.

In today's tutoring session, the student read Chapter 4 and most of Chapter 5 of the new Captain Underpants book. Once again, he did well overall reading. His focus was pretty good and he was able to read or decode most words with none or little help. He also was able to answer questions about the story as he read. We also completed 2 vocabulary worksheets from his classroom teacher. We reviewed rules for plural nouns, then did a worksheet where he circled the plural noun in sentences. The student got all of these correct and was able to explain why he circled some words and not others. The second worksheet had him writing the plural form of a word. All of these words required the student to add "es" to make the word plural (ex. turn "batch" into "batches.") Once again, he got all of these words correct.

Today the student and I continued to practice reading comprehension. We used a few short passages to focus on reading quickly but efficiently and accurately, then answered questions about main idea, supporting details, and author's purpose. Next, we used the book Tuck Everlasting to continue working on reading aloud and using punctuation as a guide, not skipping or changing words, and thinking critically about character and plot. We also discussed figurative language and author's craft.

This was our first session. The student and I worked primarily on his reading. He seemed to be very confident with his book and needed little to no help with this. I believe that this is a text he has read before so that may help. We also worked on a portion of his homework where he needed to read a non-fiction book. We read about dinosaurs in his science book. I felt that his fluency was good and that he could pronounce many of the worlds (with the exception of the scientific ones) but we need to work on reading summary and getting meaning out of the reading.

The student recognized the importance of focus and productivity of getting chunks of reading done today between short breaks. We tried reading a short sample and reviewing his mistakes. I would like to make this more important in sessions so the student will be able to eventually track and understand his own progress in reading. He is improving.

The student reported having less homework today than usual. She began the session by reading me her Thanksgiving essay. It was touching, warm, engaging, and family related. She was very proud of her work and excitedly told me how much she was looking forward to her aunt's upcoming visit next week. Instead of working on her math homework first, she opted to complete a Word List assignment that covered cent, centi-, dec, and deca-. She moved through this assignment quickly with a strong grasp of the definitions and had little difficulty answering the fill-in-the-blank sentences independently. Math was next; today it included completing 3 pages of multiplication problems in a number of different numerical expressions. When we ended today's session, she still had a couple of pages of math homework to finish. I continue to be impressed with her tenacity and improving organization. Her essay was very well written and shows what a creative thinker she is. Another excellent session.
