Session Summaries by Reading Tutors

Kent, WA Reading tutoring
At this session, the student began the book The Name of This Book is Secret, whose author had come to visit her school. The book employs a few "gimmicks", and the first chapter consisted entirely of "X"s. I asked the student to make predictions about what is going to happen based on the second chapter. We also discussed several unfamiliar words, including "sulfurous," "noxious" and "nouveau." We also talked about words that came into English through French, such as nouveau, and how to pronounce them, which is something we have worked on in recent sessions.

The student and I went over all the sight words she has practiced in the last few weeks. There are still a few that she does not get right away, so we will continue to practice those next week. Next week, I will be giving her a new set of sight words, including words she has struggled with while reading. Today she read the fluency passage that was introduced last session. She read the passage twice, increasing from 52 to 66 words per minute and 66 to 72 words per minute. Today I also model fluid reading and had her read after I read. For comprehension, we began a new story on the next reading level (F). We started by doing a picture walk and predictions. Then we went over some key vocabulary words that she would have to read and know what they mean. Last, we read the story two times. At our next session, we will reread the story, do a vocabulary activity, and do a written retell of the story. We finished tutoring by reading a book of her choice.

The student and I focused on math follow-up from Wednesday. I also emphasized writing (practicing writing letters/numbers the right way and not backwards) and reading.

Student A has a quiz on line plots with fractions tomorrow. We worked on a worksheet from her class, and then did additional practice problems online. She did great. Student B and I worked on her sight words. After that, we worked on her Reading Eggs.

The student and I alternated between doing activities to review sounds and applying those skills by reading. The first book that we read was a picture book and was thus closer to his independent reading level. He made very few mistakes with this book and those that he did make, he was able to correct himself. When helping him to sound out words, I referenced the activities we played to help him draw a direct correction to their application. His reading is far more fluid and comfortable than it once was.

Most of our time was spent working on coming up with themes and summaries to short passages. The student is getting both more creative in her retelling (not just reading sentences from the passage) and holistic in her approach (avoiding getting too specific). We agreed she would read 10 minutes each day this week, and her goal is to finish her current book by the end of the break. I'll check back with her Wednesday to see how she's doing.
