Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I had a great day. We finished the book Mr. Klutz is Nuts. We finished our chapter in Singapore Math (numbers to 100). We brainstormed words about bugs and wrote a bug essay. We celebrated earning 300 points with a game day where we played Cadoo. Happy Weekend!"
"We continued to review subtraction, specifically writing number sentences for subtraction from 9 and 10. The student started with the highest number you can take away and went down. She was able to explain the pattern, as the number you take away decreases, the answer increases. She then read Chapter 2 of Flat Stanley #9. She was able to make predictions and sequence events. As she read, she wrote down any words, phrases, or ideas that she did not understand. She then was able to figure them out using the clarification rules we talked about."
"Today the student and I worked on finding words from scrambled letters and then matching them to the picture. She then said and spelled the word. We then worked on vowel sounds and being able to hear the sound the vowel made. She read the picture and then I read the word and she told me which word had the same vowel sound. We then worked on the sound aw in words. The student read the sentences and I gave her a choice of different words with the same aw sound."
"The student reviewed his Spanish colors and we read "Los colores de las serpientes." We then worked on math! He practiced reading charts, which is a skill he will use in first grade. We then worked on telling time. He learned how to read to the hour last year and today we practiced reading to the half hour. He was a very fast learner and was able to move the hands of the clock to different times! We finally reviewed some math facts. He practiced adding equations that had 3 addends."
"The student and I worked on reading comprehension: main idea and vocabulary. Fact family in addition and subtraction. Language arts we covered contractions, the correct use of is and are and correct use of punctuation marks, capitalization and answering questions and draw a picture of correct answers."
"The student and I used his sight words "saw" and "ran" to write a story together about a crab and a crocodile. We worked on fine motor control with tracing the letters of the story and coloring in the pictures to illustrate it."
