Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session the student and I worked on reading fluency, reading comprehension, and vocabulary development. I also had a chance to view her reading assessment scores. To end the session we practiced sight word recognition."
"This was my last session with the student. We talked about the books she is currently reading and then finished the first section (chapters 13-15) of the book we've been reading - The Tale of Despereaux. Since I knew we would not be able to complete the book, I decided to have her write her own ending, using the existing structure of the book (divided into four sections, with multiple parts to each section) as a guide. The ending she came up with was about the mouse fishing a magic lamp and wishing to be a human so he could marry the princess from the beginning of the story. We then read the real last chapter, which involves the mouse staying a mouse, befriending the villain, and eating soup."
"The student and I continued to work on sounding out words and recognizing phonetic patterns. We've seen some great results with the spell-sound system (spell the word, then sound it out), especially when he picks out the letter groupings. His comprehension is excellent! Great job today!"
