It’s been a pleasure teaching Aaron this month. Aaron is always in high spirits during class time. His cheery demeanor makes the class more enjoyable, and his work ethics is very impressive. He can be jolly and hard working at the same time. Because of his positive attitude, he has improved his English speaking skills a lot. Keep up the great attitude, Aaron!
READING AND COMPREHENSION:
Aaron’s reading skill is in Proficient level. Aaron is already a fluent reader. His level of English comprehension is excellent for his age, but can still be improved if he will work harder. I still encourage him to practice retelling stories that he has read. Retelling will allow him to learn to organize and describe events, which enhances reading comprehension. By retelling stories, Aaron will not only improve his comprehension but his vocabulary as well.
SPEAKING AND PRONUNCIATION:
Aaron’s speaking and pronunciation skills are in Above Approaching Proficiency level. Aaron’s pronunciation when reading aloud is clear and has a good volume. Although sometimes, when he gets excited, he reads quickly and he misses some words and letters, leading him to make mistakes in pronouncing the words. I encourage him to slow down a little when reading, but maintain his fluency by reading with appropriate expression.
Aaron continues to demonstrate understanding of the grammar concepts we are studying. This month we learned that sentences can be written in different ways. At the moment, Aaron is still a little confused in using “was” in the passive voice. On the other hand, his good memory helps him a lot in memorizing the past participle of the verbs. We will do more activities about this topic before we move on to the next chapter.
It is highly recommended for Aaron to read more stories in English books, practice speaking with a partner and make his own sentences every day. Learning new words by watching English movies and listening to English songs and narrations to expand his vocabulary can be a great exercise too. Continue to take the active part in a conversation and don’t hesitate to ask questions in class.
The future goal that I have set for Aaron this month of January is for him to be able to do more sentence building activities through grammar games to help him constantly improve his sentence construction skills. Conversation and speaking exercise will be included in everyday activities to hone his speaking skills. More importantly, more reading exercises to enhance comprehension and vocabulary.
