Yesterday I had a good tutoring session. I did some work on fact and opinion with the kido. I asked what he remembered about fact and opinion before we started. I then gave him some key ideas about how to tell the difference between the two.
Here are a few pictures:
Student read each sentence & told
me which one was a fact or opinion.
I will transcribe sometimes to save time when tutoring.
We partner read an article called "Thanksgiving and Pumpkin Pie" from superteacherworksheets.com. I stopped after each paragraph and asked which sentences were facts and which were opinions. We color coded the sentences.
I wish I had taken a picture of the article. I think it was a great lesson!
I have been teaching about pronouns. I love to teach grammar even if it is not a common practice in the schools anymore. I think it helps with reading and writing in so many ways. Here are two pictures of some things I have been working on while tutoring:
The student then did a worksheet on pronouns. I will do more work on this topic for the next two sessions.
I have a two week break from tutoring which will give me some extra free time which is nice!
I was at the library tutoring yesterday. On the table next to me was a kid craft. Well, of course I had to make on so I can take it to the teacher I work with tomorrow and see if she wants to do it with the kidos.
I love how you could do this project for any holiday or season! I think blue and white snowflakes would be cute! It is a very strong Dixie plate with the middle cut out. SO clever!
