    Date of Class: 11/5/19
    Time of Class: 9 am.
    Volunteers/Facilitators: May
    Participants/Parents:5 Chinese, 1 Vietnamese, 1 Russian, 1 Native, 1 Spanish
    Number of Kids: 10
    What did you do: I took care of kids and played with them. I chatted with moms. Also, I taught English to the Vietnamese speaker. She tried to tell me a story when she was at home, so I corrected her sentences and asked her to keep repeating. I told her to keep repeating ketchup and mustard. There was a Chinese mom who sat there and tried to repeat ketchup and mustard to her child too. I asked her to keep saying and remember one sentence and ketchup and mustard for telling Goeun on Thursday.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): There were making the dough, sandbox, kitchen toys, painting table, shaped puzzles, doll zone, and learning colors and alphabets which were there for children. This day was not a big group as usual. Moms seemed more comfortable with me around there. They encouraged their children to play with me and asked me to watch them for a couple of minutes. I helped Emma with giving food, clean tables, and collected chairs as well as joining TPR and song activities. Children were fun to sing a song with others.

    Date of Class: 11/7/2019
    Time of Class: 9am to 11am
    Volunteers/Facilitators: Goeun
    Participants/Parents: 1 Spanish, 1 Vietnamise, 2 Russian, 4 Chinese
    Number of Kids: 8
    What did you do:
    There were 4 new families(3C, 1R) so I spent much time getting to know them. None of them were natives but they’ve lived here for over 10 years so they all spoke fluent English. In the middle of the class, Amy(Vietnamise kid) looked sleepy so I taught her mom, Thui “She’s hungry” and “She’s sleepy” She asked me why I didn’t put (-ing) at the end of the word ‘sleep’. I explained the difference between “She’s sleepy” and “She’s sleeping” with some motions. She asked me how to ask questions with the sentence so I wrote down “Is she sleepy?”, “Is she sleeping”, “Yes, She is.”, “No, She isn’t” and all the sentences that we learned before.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific):
    The Russian family whose grandma comes to PPT class, the grandma usually has classes with teacher named Amanda.
    There was a new shy Chinese boy but he ended up choosing me as a person he likes the most in the room and gave me a rose made with clay dough. Amazing!
    Thui(1V) suddenly came up to me and tried to say something about cooking but I couldn’t understand. Now I know that she tried to review the thing that she learned with May. When Thui(1V) left, she said “She’s sleepy.” to Emma. This was very impressive.

    Date of Class: 11/12/19
    Time of Class: 9 am.
    Volunteers/Facilitators:
    Participants/Parents: 6 Chinese 4 Russian 1 Vietnamese 1 Spanish 3 Native
    Number of Kids: 17

    What did you do: I spent a lot of time talked to a new Chinese mom that I haven’t met before. We talked about her daughter and her son. I also taught a Vietnamese mom a new sentence and tried to review what Koeun taught her last time. Some moms are familiar to me, so we talked about what happened at home with their children.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): There were so many people today, so it was a busy day. I took care and played with many children because moms are talking to each other and felt more comfortable to leave their children to play with me. I tried to talk with a Vietnamese speaker as much as I could, but there were so many people and children. Some of them left before the singing time. Today, we only did 2 songs which children seemed more fun because there were so many children and moms sang together. One of the songs we sand called the spider that is also translated into the Thai version as well.

    Date of Class: 11/14/2019
    Time of Class: 9am~11am
    Volunteers/Facilitators: Goeun
    Participants/Parents: 5 Chinese, 3 Russian, 1 Spanish, 1 Vietnamese
    Number of Kids: 12
    What did you do:
    The new Russian family from last week brought one more baby so I helped her playing with her older child. And I got to know that she has 4 children and two of them are very jealous. I studied English with Vietnamese mom, Thui. She said “ Amy..happy..play” so I told her “Amy is happy.” “Amy likes to play here.” And wrote them down. Thui asked the spanish mom how to pronounce her son’s name, Javier. She said “Havier” several times but Thui couldn’t make it. So I said “Happy, /h/,“ and it worked.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific):
    The new Chinese family from last week started to come every time. In the circle time, Amy, the Vietnamese daughter, got so excited and danced a lot. The funder visited and stayed about an hour. Emma introduced me to her. She told me that next week will be the last day of this term and the next term will be in January. Emma won’t be there for the first week of winter term.
