    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Students wrote out phrases we have been using and practiced amongst each other. I introduced flashcards with words we’ve been using, and we spelled the words, then pronounced in unison and individually. Also gave homework to 3 students who requested it- worksheets using ‘to be’ verbs as a gap fill exercise.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Letter practice- I yelled the letter and S’s wrote. Still having ‘a’ ‘e’ ‘i’ ‘g’ ‘j’ confusion but S’s showing more confidence. Reviewed objects and talked about personal characteristics. Students are more comfortable and are revealing more competence as their comfort level grows.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Still 5 students but one student was out and another new student started today. The new student is very limited in English. We walked around the farm and identified items and processes that they encounter everyday. We talked more about what exactly they do, plus had a side conversation about shopping, which they enjoyed.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): First, letter listen and point. We then did ‘here it is’ with a simple dialog I had written using words and phrases from the previous 2 weeks. I read the dialog, S’s then repeated, then they practiced in pairs. Last activity was an object recognition (with some spelling) of everyday objects. S’s are challenged but stay with it, and they are getting better with the idea of helping each other. One student is a bit competitive but he is now helping without being prompted.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Split students into 2 groups of 3, called out letters and first group to have everyone write the correct letter got a point. Then did same with words that we covered in the past 2 weeks. S’s were engaged and surprisingly competitive- they had issues with wh- words but otherwise did much better than I anticipated. Final activity was bingo using grids made with words we’ve been working on the last two weeks. Used words in sentences when there was confusion. S’s very engaged.
