We began with a quiz on the "Most Misspelled" words that I'd given the student to study; he had 6/10 correct, so we practiced those missed again until he felt confident in the spellings. We then went on to his book, "Magic Tree House #3." We read several more chapters and discussed the content and the meanings of new words. To finish with the reading for the day, I asked the student chapter-specific recall questions. He did well with those. He remains very enthusiastic about the book and the series, and is quite pleased that his mom purchased the whole set for him. He wants us to read them all! For homework, I assigned a total of 15 words from the "100" list: 11 new plus the 4 missed in this session for a quiz next session.

I met with Student 1 for an hour and then with Student 2 for an hour. During my session with Student 1, we reviewed some assignments from her teacher. These assignments required the student to read, write, and spell words. This practice allowed her to enhance her reading ability. Next, I required the student to read several of the books that her parents had newly purchased. I was able to gauge her reading ability with these books because she had never read them before. Therefore, she was not able to simply recall what she remembered reading previously. She also could not simply look at the pictures and call words based on the pictures; she had to actually read the words. During the session with Student 2, we reviewed his homework assignment. This assignment called for him to read a story about the "space race." After I had the student read the story aloud to me, I asked him several questions to test his reading comprehension. He did very well with answering the questions, which demonstrated that he understood the story. Finally, he had to create a graphic art project which was to demonstrate the value of the United States' space program based on his reading. He completed this with project with no issues.

On Tuesday we read a short story called "Superhero Joey" and then I had the student answer 5 questions about the story. Before reading I had her make a prediction of what she thought would happened. During the reading I had her underline important parts of the story (the who, what, when, where, why in the story). She had a little bit of trouble doing this and ended up underlining too many sentences, even after reminding her she only should have at most eight things underlined. After we worked on the comprehension skills we played go fish to work on sight words. She enjoyed this and is beginning to read the words faster once she sees them.

On Wednesday, I worked with the student on two more units of social studies in his textbook. He needed to prepare for his final social studies exam. He did really well remembering the units we worked on the day before and seemed to have a strong grasp on the subject matter. I recommended that he review the material once more for one hour before bed. From the tutoring session, it seemed that he knew the material and should do well on the exam if he takes his time answering each question.

Once again this student had a great reading session. We continued to read a nonfiction book that consisted of facts on WWII. He used his reading strategies to sound out words on his own, both orally and kinesthetically. I did not have to remind him of any spelling rules. I'm so proud of him. We also read a mystery called Book of Storms. It was an excellent book! I feel the student likes it, too. His comprehension skills are incredible. Every once in awhile, we'll have to go back and look for answers. Hence, he's mastering so many reading skills.
