5 Things That Make Tutoring Sessions Fun

Number One:  Getting to know the student through light conversation by asking things such as:  "Do you like school?"
"What is your favorite subject?"  "Who is your favorite teacher?"  "Do you have a best friend?" and similar questions.
Number Two:  Showing the student a small art or craft project or a photograph I have recently taken or worked on and talking briefly with them about it -- such as a piece of wood found in the yard that resembles an animal and is painted to look like that animal.
Number Three:  Drawing a picture with the student about a story we have read.  Then posting their drawing of the story along with mine on the wall by our tutoring table.
Number Four:  Playing cards or shooting dice to add or multiply the numbers on the cards or on the dice.
Number Five:  Letting my pet cat sit on our tutoring table during the tutoring sessions and making room for the cat by moving our books for the cat.
