Once upon a time (6 years ago) I taught upper grades. I have been teaching primary grades for quite a while and have no idea what to do with a soon to be 5th grader I am tutoring in reading. He is pretty avg student. He doesn't love reading but can be hooked. I am always surprised by what he likes. He isn't interested in many new books but has gotten hooked on Encyclopedia Brown and Hardy Boys. Ideas ideas what I can do with him. I know reading comprehension is the core but I am not quite sure what do do with it just being the two of us. Any tips?
SHould I be doing some vocab? ANy writing ideas.

I have been using much more non-fiction the past four-five years that often appeals to boys and others that don't gravitate towards fiction. We have used themed sets such as:
