Focus on one skill
Dana your pronunciation is getting so much better! Next time I want you to focus on making the "r" sound instead of the "l" sound. Try putting the tip of your finger on your tongue when you say R words.
Comment, not correct
Hey Chan, you got an 8 on the practice spelling test. That's much better than last week. Maybe you should look over the word list one more time though.
Students give feedback
Good job Chan. You spell "chicken" bad. It "c-h-i-c-K-en".
During class, we have frequent pronunciation formative assessments. Dana is a very smart student but struggles to pronounce letters properly. In this example, instead of focusing on all the letters she's saying wrong, I focus on a single letter sound.
Every week I give the students a practice spelling test. Chan reads well but struggles to spell. In this example, rather than telling him which words are wrong, I tell him to look over his list again so he can find his own mistakes.
I've recently had the students grade each other's spelling tests and give feedback. This was an actual conversation I heard between two of my students (hence the bad grammar). The point is that the students help each other and help themselves through peer feedback.
