Hello everybody! Well, I've been tutoring a rising fifth grader since he was in third grade. We've been through a lot together, but now that he's going into fifth grade, he's just not that into our tutoring sessions. I've seen lots of improvement, but am stuck as far as ideas for a writing assignments that will motivate him this summer. Part of it might be my master's classes have consumed my time. But, now that they are over for the summer, I'm still drawing a blank. Any ideas to get him reading/writing? He's reading Babe...that's part of the title....Boy goes back in time to see if Babe Ruth really called a homerun or if he was just pointing at something. We just started it two wks. ago. Skipped last wk. because family on vacation. Help!
