Mark the Student’s Work

General points made here apply to tutoring using any materials. The lesson packs on this site make it easy for parents to tutor.

  1. Immediate feedback to a student is the most effective way for the child to learn.
  2. It is more helpful if an adult needs to sit with the child, share the reading task, and watch over while they do the writing activities.
  3. You could allow the child to attempt the writing tasks alone. Avoid prompting your child when they hesitate. Allow time for the child to work things out, decode a word using their phonics knowledge, and self correct. Self correction is a good sign of progress.
  4. At the end of this you can work out whether¬† your child earned a mark on a question on their own. Discuss. You could say, “I helped you with this one. Do you think you earned your mark?” Then give them an encouragment mark. This opens the way for lessons from Mum or Dad next week too.
  5. If you find a student is having difficulty with the text and tasks, use easier materials if using these lesson packs. The year levels given to these units of work is elastic.
