Session Summaries by Phonics Tutors

Shoreline, WA Phonics tutoring
Upon arrival, the student's father gave me a sample summary of "Where the Red Fern Grows" that he had found online. I decided to read it with the student as a model for the summary he needs to write. But I again drew up graphic organizers to quiz him on the characters and setting of the novel. He was faster this time than yesterday, although still needed a lot of help with the setting. I turned it into a cloze exercise, and he did much better, but still had significant trouble understanding whether the main character lived in town or not. After filling out the charts, we read the sample summary. I once again explained to the student that he needs to write something similar but much shorter. We gathered his iPad to continue writing the plot summary. When this proved too difficult, I switched to writing a few starting events on the board, then prompted him to continue. He wrote an event that happened near the end of novel, so I prompted him to continue until the very end of the story. That gave him of few things to copy from the board into digital text on the iPad. I helped him transfer the summary in progress to the desktop computer via email. Then I suggested ways that he could reorganize the sentences for better chronological accuracy. He's having trouble filling in events in the middle of the novel, but the beginning and end are fairly good. We will pick up with the characters and setting again tomorrow.

We went over some basic grammar rules and then went over the new vocabulary words that she is required to know. In addition, she read two chapters in the book that she purchased from the library. I saw her report card and she scored satisfactory levels on all reading domains. She is doing great!

Today we covered the last remaining sections of her workbook in preparation for upcoming standardized assessment exams. I reviewed her answers for the practice exam questions and she was for correct for about 95% of them. She only needed help for a few of them. She appears to need more review of advanced vocabulary that may be selected for such exams. I had two remaining worksheets on reading comprehension and vocabulary that I assigned for homework for our next session on Wednesday. She also showed me her outline for a potential essay topic regarding favorite travel destinations. She showed good thought process and organization of details. Assigning her outlines and brainstorming for possible essays will help her prepare for the essay portion of the entrance exams.

The student and I practiced her reading today. She did an excellent job and is learning to read with more animation and emotion. This is shown through her tonality and emphasis of certain words and phrases.

Tonight, we worked on reading fluency and comprehension. The student did a wonderful job with responding to the questions appropriately with complete sentences. In addition, we played games using addition, subtraction, and multiplication as review. She is awesome!

We continued work on the student's pre-senior project proposal. We researched and created the basis for the media ad campaign, and then we moved on to researching the scholarly sources he needed for his generalized problem statement.
