It has been a pleasure teaching Bunny this month. Bunny has remained to be a shy and quiet student. While she is still sometimes overly shy, I think she has become comfortable in class, enough to tell things that she plans to do during the weekends. Hopefully she will continue to be comfortable in speaking and sharing her stories in the future.
READING AND COMPREHENSION:
Bunny’s reading skill is in Approaching Proficiency level. Bunny has shown improvement in her reading comprehension skills this month. She’s able to retell some parts of the reading material verbally, although she only uses keywords sometimes. I encourage her to try harder in retelling stories. By practicing this on a regular basis, Bunny will improve not only her reading fluency but her comprehension as well.
SPEAKING AND PRONUNCIATION:
Bunny’s speaking and pronunciation skills can be considered as Approaching Proficiency level. Bunny’s pronunciation has improved this month. When she reads, she doesn’t mumble and she pronounces the words clearly and correctly. During conversation, she often uses habitual answers. I encourage her to try even a little bit to tell about things that had happened in her day. Be more confident in speaking and apply the lessons she had learned in the book.
Bunny’s grammatical skill is in Approaching Proficiency level. Bunny has done well in grammar exercises this month. She only got a few mistakes in our grammar quizzes and with more practice, she’ll be able to do a lot better. I always encourage Bunny to speak up freely in class and be more confident in speaking. She can start by responding appropriately to the routine questions I ask her every day.
It is highly recommended for her to read more stories or articles in English. Practice speaking and constructing sentences by telling things that happened in her day. Read dialogues with expression to improve intonation. Work slowly if needed and don’t rush in giving answers. I also encourage her to ask more questions if there is an unfamiliar word to strengthen her vocabulary. She should continuously try to build more confidence and trust herself that she can achieve more.
The future goal that I’ve set for Bunny this month of January is for her to constantly improve her speaking and comprehension skills by building more confidence in speaking and doing an intensive reading. New materials will be introduced each week to continuously sharpen her English skills and her cooperation is extremely essential. We will try to work on her vocabulary so that she’ll be able to read more difficult articles in the future.
