Students of the Month (5/21)

Allison | Age 5

Allison is an animal lover and a kind and patient big sister to a brother who always wants to be involved with whatever she’s doing. She is observant, quick, and a bit of a prankster!

Reading confidence has been a big challenge, but Allison has persevered and has recently read whole books out loud without hesitation!

She’s looking forward to making new friends in her next classroom. She admires her older sister’s ability to pick up new big books to read for fun, and she’s being a patient and caring big sister to her brother who always wants to be doing what she’s doing.

Jonathan | Age 6

Jonathan brings so much love and attention to his work. He is kind, funny, and loves school! He is also a literal master of Tic Tac Toe!

Jonathan has found some words challenging to read out loud. Not only do we have a list of words we go over at the beginning of every session, but we also try to incorporate those words into our homework and conversation!

Jonathan hopes to be a firefighter or a scientist or both when he grows up. He also cannot wait to travel into space and visit Mars!

Jonathan continually encourages me to approach tutoring with more compassion, enthusiasm, and humor! He has also tried to teach me his mastery of Tic Tac Toe and the secrets to some of his magic tricks!

John | Age 5

John LOVES numbers. He likes to count things. He likes to add and multiply. He likes to try to think of the biggest number he can. He also enjoys drawing and likes Batman and Sonic the Hedgehog.

In our tutoring sessions, we have focused on early literacy and phonemic awareness. John has made great progress and is becoming a reader!

When I asked John what he would like to be when he grows up, he said, “I would like to be a superhero.” And when I asked him about any dreams for the future, he said he wishes he could be very strong.
