    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific):I brought different kinds of clothes and we practiced the names of clothes, using both our worksheets with pictures and the examples I brought in. We talked about the difference between coats and jackets, and between hats and caps, and we started working on a song about getting dressed in the morning.

    What happened: Maureen joined us as DJ. We had a big, enthusiastic group. I’d brought a handout of a recipe for summer berry crisp with a color picture at the top which fit in with our theme and was new to many participants, but something they were interested in and could see themselves making and enjoying. We practiced reading and pronouncing the names of the ingredients and amounts.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific):I had students write a bit and help each other. This was, as far as I know, the first time these students had been encouraged to do this, and I took the risk of challenging them. I also wanted them to get practice helping each other and making connections with each other in this way, seeing themselves as helpers and as capable of building community around learning English together, rather than being embarrassed or having to get it perfectly. We wrote the sentences we say: What’s my name? etc. I could see in the previous weeks some of them trying to say, What’s my name? but not quite getting it, so it seemed like they were ready for this next step and very appreciative. We also practiced helping certain students spell their names. One student had a breakthrough and spelled her name, which is long, perfectly for the very first time. I got to congratulate her and this was very moving. A few others still need help with this. We also practiced saying and hearing the difference between B and V, and between M and N. Several of the students thanked me afterwards in English and Spanish for having a good class, helping them, and being patient and encouraging. I can’t find my attendance sheet so I may have forgotten it in the box, so I will have to fill it out next time.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific):Michael observed this class & plans to return Thursday. I brought the song Blueberry Hill & a basket of blueberries to share. After students spelled their own names, which some students are having breakthoughs with, but others are still struggling with, we all did a call and response with the song, using the lyrics sheet, and then we sang together. Even though they clearly liked the song, as a language learning exercise this seemed challenging for many of the students, both in terms of pronunciation and comprehension. After class, I, Michael, & Erika had a relatively long and in-depth conversation about the needs of this population in terms of learning English. Erika expressed how her biggest concern is that some of these people don’t remember/know how to say phone numbers (their own or those of their family members), find addresses, fill out even the simplest forms, figure out bus schedules, or follow simple instructions. She said she hopes we can continue to work together and will see if the funding for this class can continue.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific):Today was our last class. Michael observed again, and was very helpful making new loyalty cards, luckily, since there were a couple of new students! Many students asked for the class to continue, some even asking me after class. We did a number listen and point with the numbers on the alphabet sheets, and even this was challenging for some of the students. We practiced counting in a group, together, call and response, and then going round robin, with each student saying only one number. We listened to the difference between, and then practiced as a group saying, fourteen and forty, fifteen and fifty. This was to have tied into the module on clothes and shopping.
