David is a smart kid but he doesn't like to focus on the lessons sometimes. He's playful and gets easily distracted. But when you ask him a question about the lesson, he can still answer it without much guidance. He still participates in class when the teacher asks him to do so.
David’s reading skill can be considered as Approaching Proficiency. This is because he reads well at a normal pace and speed. Although there are still some mispronounced words which are unfamiliar to the student. The student will ask the teacher first whenever he doesn’t know how to read a particular word. He's always ready to be corrected.
David’s comprehension skill can be considered as Approaching Proficiency. This is because he can understand the lesson quickly. His teacher doesn’t need to repeat the same instruction and questions twice whenever they’re having lessons. He can also answer book activities without much guidance.
SPEAKING AND PRONUNCIATION:
David’s speaking and pronunciation skills can be considered as Above Developing. This is because the student can express his thoughts using the English language with a little help. His words are clear when speaking but he still needs to improve his vocabulary.
David seems a bit unfocused in class, so he needs more interesting and interactive topics and games in ESL. He likes it when you start the class with some interesting free talking topics and ESL games. But other than that, David can easily cope up with any lessons in class.
His teacher will still be introducing more conversational English to enhance the student’s speaking skill. The teacher will also prepare more interactive ESL worksheets and games that are related to every lesson.
