Session Summaries by Reading Tutors

McHenry, IL Reading tutoring
The student worked on her alphabet. She wrote out both capital and lower case letters. We then reviewed sounds and words using puffy stickers I brought for her. It's important to keep some routine but also important to introduce new ways to learn. She picks up on everything quickly. We also worked on the study cards with various words and letters. Some of them included the use of two letters together such as ck and tr. We also reviewed making long vowel sounds by having the letter followed by a consonant and then followed by the letter e. We also worked on recognizing silent letters such as those found in colors like white, orange, and blue. Excellent session. She is enthusiastic about learning. These are one hour sessions.

Today, we worked on getting to know the student's strengths and weaknesses for both reading and writing. We took a look at some of her winter break homework, did 2 story-writing activities, and also played a word/vocab game. She is great at sounding out words and reading aloud-- next week we're going to work on more complex reading comprehension, to see how she does. In terms of writing, her syntax is good, and she's great at self-correction when it comes to spelling. She does seem to have some trouble generating ideas and gets discouraged easily when she can't think of what to write. Next week, we'll try to work on ways that she can come up with ideas and plan out her stories before she begins to write, which will help her proceed with more confidence and be able to write using higher-level vocabulary.

We covered how to answer comprehension questions in her reading. We used children's books that were close to her grade level. We looked at how to look at all of the text, even graphs, charts, and text that she had already gone over. She had a great attitude and seemed to try her best. Her dad seemed to be doing all of the right things to help her succeed, and I emailed him about how he could continue to work on comprehension with her until I saw her again.

We began the session working on the grammar from last week, subject/predicate, noun/verb. The student seemed to understand last week's lesson well. Repeating over and over the definition of each (Noun: person place or thing; Verb: action; Adjective: description) seems to help. Later we did multiplication, and I showed him how to multiply two-digit numbers. He needs more practice with this, so we'll cover this in our next session.

I read the student what the characteristics of effective readers are. I had him share his thoughts. We read two articles then answered comprehension questions for each. While reading, I reminded him of the techniques we learned in the first session for ways to increase comprehension. We referred to this list and clarified any vocabulary in the stories. He did very well and was able to recall most of the information that was asked. Then I had him choose an article from a magazine. We read the article then completed a comprehension worksheet specifically for magazine articles. Lastly, we read a story from a schoolbook and answered questions aloud. It is a pleasure to work with him because he is interested and willing to do the work.
