Session Summaries by English Tutors

Jacksonville, FL English tutoring
At the beginning of the lesson we reviewed daily routines and things relating to roads, such as street, sidewalk, parking lot, bridge, etc. We spent a good part of the lesson playing "I Spy." The student is becoming better at remembering words for objects we have previously found in the book and is getting better at saying what object she sees rather than pointing to it. We wrapped up the lesson by reading "Inside Out."

We spent 45 minutes going over questions from the student's citizenship exam textbook from the geography session. I taught her how to look at a map (N, E, S, W), we went over what coast, ocean, and border mean, and we went through the questions in the book. She was eager to learn and had heard most of the words but didn't know what some of them meant. We then spent 15 minutes reading. She read aloud and only had a couple vocab questions, which was great. I gave her some worksheets from the textbook.

Yesterday, we worked on the student's new material, but still focused mainly on pronunciation. We also had a long discussion about the topic of some of the material. We have also discussed the potential of introducing the study of fiction and writing as a way to work on his language skills.

To start the lesson, we began with some stretches and then sang songs that had movement involved. I taught her the "head, shoulders, knees, and toes" song and the Hokey Pokey. It was a fun way to wake her up and then get engaged in the lesson. We focused on rhyming words today so she can begin to recognize letter combinations and their sounds. It also helps with writing, since she's knows many of these words and now can write the letter combinations for those sounds. We took turns coming up with a rhyming word, with each of us drawing a picture so that she can remember the words better. This exercise also expands her vocabulary, and I think we will continue with it in future lessons. It is also less intimidating to start with singular words than whole sentences for reading and writing.

Today the student and I worked primarily on his math homework, and reading. His homework focused on place value in word problems. We targeted breaking apart the problem and solving each problem using a place value chart. While reinforcing math vocabulary (standard, expanded, and word form). We then played a short addition and subtraction fact game which the student enjoyed. We concluded our session by reading an audiobook on the phases of the moon and discussed what was learned. During the session we used a whiteboard to show examples and created a place value chart. He seemed to enjoy this and thought it was "fun" to use. Next session we will explore using a dictionary to translate from Spanish to English. The family will also take him to the library to check out books of interest.

I had found some phonics flashcards this week, and we started by looking at those. Each had a list of words starting with a particular sound, and we went through short A and long A words together, then the student practiced reading these words multiple times while I pointed to them, going back and forth between the lists and the two sounds for A. I left these cards with him and encouraged him to use them for practice, as one side has words and the other has pictures depicting most of the words on the list. After the flashcards, we looked at some of the other phonics materials. We turned to a page in the workbook with lists of sight words and took the same approach as with the flashcards: he read through them in order, and then I pointed to different words for him to read one at a time. Along the way, I helped him with pronunciations and explained the meanings of unfamiliar words. He then read through one of the books, with me helping explain unfamiliar words. After that, we looked at some of the posters in his room. One was an inspirational poster featuring a swimmer and the word "character." I explained what this meant and helped him read through the sentence. We then looked at his martial arts poster, reviewing words and phrases from last time and looking ahead at a few more. This way he was able to practice reading words that he had heard in English in a familiar context but whose spelling wasn't familiar. Finally, I sent him a list of street and place names around town that I thought would be useful and that he can practice reading later. He's going to use this list, the flashcards, and the other phonics materials as he continues to practice.
