We are off to a good start with my four students. They were given an in depth evaluation the first weekend so we know what areas to begin work with and where their strengths and weaknesses lie. Everyone has shown great effort and comes to tutoring enthusiastic and ready to work. We've been learning to improve our cursive writing, spelling rules, Latin prefixes and root words, grammar usage, comprehension skills, and fluency. So far the four students have finished reading six books between them. We keep a chart in the dining room to track this. The students are all of a competitive nature and enjoy the different games we play to help them with their skills. It has been fun to watch the quiet, reserved children that I first met change before my eyes. They are all active participants in their learning and their outdoor pursuits. Everyone had great reviews about the fireworks in Silverton. I have also been hearing a lot about the horses, X-Rock, the Animas River, and scuba. School starts everyday and they are all ready and raring to go. They truly are a great group of kids that you all must be very proud of.
