Peer Tutoring

Every day after lunch for around ten or  fifteen minutes we have three or four  awesome grade 5, 6, or 7 students work with us.  They come from several different classes and different children come each day.  These awesome people are our peer tutors and they are helping us learn our letter sounds, our word wall words, and some basic sight words.  Sometimes they just help us by showing us flashcards of the words (or letters) we are learning, but other times they help us use the iPad or the iPod to use apps that help us learn our words (or letters).  Here are a few pictures from a typical peer tutoring session.

Ms. Lirenman is really impressed by how much we are learning because of the help of our peer tutors.  We can't thank them enough.  Do you have peer tutors at your school? If you do what do they do with you?
