It’s been a pleasure teaching Aurora this month. Aurora’s attitude towards studying English is excellent. She is enthusiastic during class and often shares her ideas about certain things. I noticed that this month, she has been more of a conversation starter. She often starts a topic that we can talk about, and she’s never shy to express her thoughts in English. Keep up the great confidence, Aurora!
Aurora’s reading skill is in Approaching Proficiency level. Aurora continues to read with good fluency and intonation and her comprehension skill is constantly improving. She has almost no problems reading the book we are using right now. She prefers speaking rather than using the book sometimes. To improve her reading further, I recommend reading her favorite books and poems over and over again. Practice reading smoother and with expression.
Aurora’s comprehension skill is in Approaching Proficiency level. Aurora is a wonderful participant in classroom discussions. Her reading comprehension skills are excellent and she reads clearly and with confidence. She is always willing to ask questions to clarify concepts she does not understand. Her inquisitive personality will contribute greatly to her conversation skills. Keep up the good work, Aurora!
SPEAKING AND PRONUNCIATION:
Aurora’s speaking and pronunciation skills are in Approaching Proficiency level. Aurora’s speaking and pronunciation skills are constantly improving. Now, she greatly enjoys speaking in class and answering various conversation questions. Storytelling has become her favorite activity in class and I always enjoy the conversation with her. Keep up the good work, Aurora!
Aurora’s grammatical skill is in Approaching Proficiency Level. She already gained the confidence she needs to speak fluently in English. Aurora is starting to become active in conversation. She sometimes asks questions if she is curious about something. It’s good that she is trying to formulate questions like she is in a casual conversation. For me it is a sign of improvement and hopefully she will continue to do that in the future.
It is highly recommended for Aurora to read more stories or articles in English. Practice speaking and constructing sentences by telling things that happened in her day and her plans for the next day. Try to focus a bit more on the lesson and continue to volunteer to share her ideas in class. Make the most out of the lessons, ask more questions if there is any unfamiliar word to strengthen her vocabulary. Use the newly learned words in sentences to remember their usage easily.
The future goal that I have set for her this month of January is for Aurora to work on her sentence construction skills. Speaking exercises will be done every day to brush up her skills and confidence when speaking. To increase her vocabulary, we will read stories and discuss it after reading. Aurora should be able to re-tell a story she has read, using the vocabulary words in the reading material and she should be able to make her own sentences using them.
