"I met with the student today, and we worked on a Spanish assignment wherein he had to write the English translation of sentences written in Spanish. The student also worked on spelling for 4th grade. He enjoyed the program and wants to continue with it for a while."
"I saw a LOT of improvement today with the student. We worked on letter name and sound recognition. We first started with pictures. I would say the word and the student had to tell me what letter it started with. He actually only missed a couple of letter sounds, which is really great improvement. Then we used sight word cards to sort words according to the letter they started with. He had to tell me the letter that each word started with. Our biggest struggles today were with the letter 'j' and 'w.' It's great to see him improving!"
"I taught her how to count by 6s and we practiced multiplication as well as review the ones that she's already learned. She struggles with counting by bigger numbers; however, she did great! We wrote the problems down, verbally counted out loud, and did worksheets that I brought to reinforce memorization. I left her with some homework to do until next week. In the next 2 weeks, she should have learned all of her multiplication tables."
"I was so proud of how hard the student worked today. Since it's the beginning of the school year, her math teacher is quizzing them on all of their multiplication facts, so we reviewed the ones she was having difficulty with. She was getting a little frustrated with herself, but she kept going, and I think with a little practice, she is going to ace those multiplication quizzes!"
"I worked with student one and two on reviewing and preparing for a Math test (Friday). We reviewed Chapters 25-29, and I used their Saxon Math book as a study guide. I reviewed word problems, rounding to the nearest ten, dollar and 25 cent, fractions, radius, diameter, elapsed time, writing multiplication problems from addition sentences, measurement and the different properties of multiplication. I used examples from the book and made up problems during our review. I encouraged both students to draw out their problems, reread, and label all problems and always show their work to ensure full credit on homework and tests. Both students had difficulty with elapsed time going backward and would benefit from continued review in this concepts and in the different properties of multiplication and their application. They both seem to enjoy Math and have shown improvement in showing their work on homework."
"I worked with the student on ELA. He completed his first few paragraphs. The student should have a model to follow for the following paragraphs. For math, we quickly reviewed his math packet. He has a few worksheets to practice what he's been doing in math."
