Summer School Tutoring--- My Last Day

Today is my last day of tutoring little kids... I only have 4 hours and 20 minutes left to do... I have had some fun times and some not-so-fun times. But overall I am glad that I decided to do all 50 hours this summer.

Summer School Tutoring--- Day 5

Today, Ms. Owens is reading the 2nd chapter of Trouble River to the kids. Then we are going to do a little activity with them. I hand out printer paper and sentence strips, Ms. Owens tapes the strips in the middle of the paper. The kids have to think about what happened before and after. An example is: She blew the biggest bubble she had ever seen. And the kids have to think of a sentence to go before and after that sentence. Then, they pass their paper to someone else. And that kid writes the before, then they pass it again and another kid writes the after. Finally, the first person who had it stands up and reads it outloud to the class. The things they come up with are truly unique LoL... TTFN

Summer School Tutoring--- Day 4

Yesterday, I left the school at about 12:45 so I could go swimming. After I had gotten to the pool, some of my guy-friends showed up so we hung out at the pool for 3 hours........ Today, the kids are going to listen to Ms. Owens or myself read a short story that has nothing to do with the book that we read yesterday. They have to make a chart and fill it in as a table. After that, they have to change the characteristic of the boy in the story and tell us how the story would change. The kids are making this really funny. LoL... TTFN

Summer School Tutoring---Day 3

This Memorial Day weekend I got so sunburnt, so I am a little uncomfortable, but I think it will be a great day... Ms. Owens and I are reading a book to the kids called Trouble River. Today we are reading the first chapter to them. But, before we read to them, we are taking the kids to the school library to check out two books to read this week. There are lots of great readers.
