Session Summaries by Reading Tutors

Renton, WA Reading tutoring
The student and I first reviewed her math homework. After that, I had her read "Olivia Measures Up." During reading, I asked comprehension questions and asked her to make predictions. Then, I had her complete a practice sheet on homophones. After that, I had her read "Animals Animals." Again, I asked her questions about the story as she read. During the last part of the session, she worked on addition problems using a dry erase math workbook. She asked if she could borrow the book, so I left it there for her to practice with. We talked about why having a tutor is important and how she has an advantage in school because of it. I think she is starting to enjoy tutoring more and have an understanding of its importance.

The student and I worked on reviewing skills, including closed syllables and digraphs. We also introduced a new sound and syllable rule for two closed syllable words. The student was able to read single and two syllable words in isolation by applying the rules. She also applied those rules to read the beginning of a short story. She did very well with fluency while reading. For homework, I assigned the student the story and the syllable rules along with verbal cues, examples, and practice items. We will continue to work on these skills during our next session.

We started off going over sight words. He did a great job sounding out words. I then had him read a book. He pointed to the sight words we had gone over when he came to them in the story. He had trouble with the names. He also had trouble with the word practice. We then did a sequence activity to make sure he understood the story. He had a fluency worksheet from school that we did next. I read the passage with him then timed him for 1 minute. He read 44 words in a minute with no errors. I had him finish the passage. I then read him a couple of books I had brought along.

In our session we covered short vowel sounds. We specifically covered short e and short i words. We also sorted long and short e words. The student is struggling with blending words and b, d, and p confusion. We discussed strategies for determining the difference between b, d, and p. I did provide a word list for additional practice. The student is interested in using the tools on the workboard.

During this session, I looked over the paragraph the student wrote, summarizing the beginning of his historical fiction book. I helped him edit and revise. He had a few run-on sentences. After, he read from his book and we discussed the text. He tends to understand on more of a literal level. The book, written in verse, utilizes elements of metaphor, symbolism and flashbacks. He needs guidance, at times to understand the underlying meanings of some of the passages. Once we talk it through, he grasps the meaning. We will keep working on it.

Today's session focused on phonics and word decoding, reading, and math. We started the session warming up on touch points for math numbers on the tablet. Then we reviewed the student's sight words in addition to his CVC words by reading and decoding flashcards. We worked on double digit addition and subtraction without regrouping and also played the missing number math game where the student has to identify what number is missing in the equation (ex.5 + ? =8). He does well when he is able to use a number line and manipulatives or visuals while solving math problems. We ended the session reading two books, one that includes both sight words and decodable short vowel sound words, and the other book at his instructional guided reading level A.
