    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): We started later because there were no students at first, but we got started when we finally had two to work with. Cecilia led then on listen and point. They were fairly high-level learners, so she was able to make it pretty complicated. We then did the lesson title and then did a round robin with a variety of terms related to motherhood. We then did a listen and point drill on a sheet of advice for baby proofing a house. The cursive script made it challenging, but the students were up to it. After that we did progressive dictation on a number of terms related to motherhood and babies. Due to the small class and the level of the students, we were able to give a bit more description about the terms than we would normally be able to do. Both students mentioned that they enjoyed that.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Ben dictated several sentences with the heading: top 10 Best Things your mother told you.
    Some of the learners laughed about a few of the funny sentences such as “Always bring an extra pair of underwear!” and were confused about a few such as “Target is so much more than a store!” Benjamin concluded the class by having the learners stand up and mime movements concerned with motherhood such as BOTTLE (feed the baby) and change the diaper.
    In the saga of learners bringing their kids and trying to find a solution, Tuesday, we got out several manipulatives for children to play with from the Toddler Time closet of fun. This seemed to go over well and we’ll do this again, although we’re learning that the root of this particular dilemma is that the class is conducted during certain children’s nap times, so no amount of cool toys will change that fact.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Although this was a small group, they were very cohesive – there was good interaction throughout. It was wonderful to see one of the regular learners who usually needs help, assisting some other learners! Ashlyn put together a lesson plan for the 4th week of the Farmer’s Market module that was fresh and engaging. For the more advanced learners, there was some good new vocabulary. Lemonade and apple slices provided for a nice wrap-up and a fun Round Robin following the dictation progression, “Vendors sometimes have free samples!”
