    Lesson Title: The Center for disease control (CDC) says there are currently 465 cases of measles in 19 different states. This is the highest number of cases since 2014 when there were 667.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Nice class back after a 3 week break- there were 5 learners! Pretty rad. I am excited to explore the topic of vaccinations over the next few weeks. We first did the title of the lesson and I tried to gather how much they knew/know about the current measles outbreak- interestingly, none of them knew about it. But, also none of them have small children so that is certainly a factor. We looked at a graph and a fact sheet, dictated some facts as well as some mini dialogues. We learned the word ‘contagious’ and practiced a funny round robin dialogue with that. Look forward to digging in deeper next week :)

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): I don’t really plan much for this class since, especially lately, I really don’t know who will be here. I can usually count on at least 1 learner and since all of them who have come to this session in the past few months are at a more beginner level, I know that I can plan as I go depending on who comes. With that said, I was prepared to talk more about family as thats where we left off last week. However, as a new learner came today, we shifted gears a bit and worked with some basic intro questions which led into some practice with the verbs ‘do and can’. So it was sort of a hodge podge of a class but we practiced a lot of good stuff!

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): We practiced English around the topic of vaccinations, mostly regarding the debate or ‘Vaccine War’. We did a sort of cloze/find the right article activity on the board, explored a word cloud with lots of good related vocab and then a listen/find, dictation, reading activity with an article about more specifics surrounding the debate. We ended with a short dialogue about the state of emergency declared last week in NYC. Great class :)

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): The new learner came back- she was there waiting for me when I got to class which is a rarity with this group! No one is ever on time, let alone early.. hehe. We first talked about classes she can attend near her home in NE Portland and I showed her how to use Portland ESL network! She is probably between low and mid-intermediate so we are able to chat it up more than ‘usual’ for this site. We reviewed some questions from last week related to her move here to PDX from.. Alabama! yikes! haha. Then worked with numbers/addresses a bit and then she asked me to help her understand the phrase ‘so far’. That was a good challenge!

    Reflection: “It was ok.” (1) vs. Life-changing Epiphany (10) = 4

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): We started with finishing the dialogue we started from last week- two learners weren’t there last week so I had the other 2 help them with the part of the dialogue that we had already written down. It was pretty cool to watch them be the ‘teachers’ and I could feel the sense empowerment happening, particularly in one of them :) The dialogue was long and a bit complex so took a little longer than I hoped but it was good. At the end of it, they got to sort of choose their reply, like a ‘what would you do’ if you were given the option to either vaccinate your child or pay $1,000 for not doing it (like the Mayor of NYC is proposing). It was interesting to see what each one chose!
    Next we learned the names and symptoms of some of the most common diseases that Americans get vaccinated for and worked with the images in a variety of ways to wrap up the class. Good class!

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): One learner came and we practiced a lot with general numbers/ordinals and then focused on addresses. I loved watching her eyes light up after I showed her the pattern/a good way to remember how to pronounce ordinals is to follow the last 2 letters of the number spelled out i.e., the ‘st’ after the 1 in firST, 2nd-secoND, etc… She was amazed and caught on pretty quickly. She said she couldn’t figure out how to pronounce numbered streets until today! It made my day for sure :)

    Lesson Title: For millions of years, humans have been inventing tools to help us survive and thrive in this world.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): We stated a new theme- Inventions! I think it’s super fascinating and I think they do too. We started with a title to introduce the topic then asked eachother ‘what’s one thing you can’t live without’? This was a little more complicated than I thought but I gave some examples and then they caught on. The goal was to help them realize how important certain things are to our life that we may take for granted or just not even think about much (lightbulb, refrigerator, wheel, etc…) We then looked at a bunch of images of the most ‘famous’ inventions of all time and I had them try to put them in chronological order. They did pretty good and even learned some new words! Next we used a worksheet I found online that used the passive tense to talk about inventions- pretty useful and relevant :) With just a few minutes left I had them practice this tense with the images on the table i.e., “Which was invented first; the wheel or the airplane? It was quite a good class, I must say :)

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): One learner came today. We practiced with alphabet then did some very focused practice with minimal pairs, particularly with L and R. She learned some new vocabulary words and got a lot of good pronunciation practice. We spent the remained of class learning names different jobs and practiced with questions like ‘what do you do, what does she do’? etc.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): All 5 learners came today- they were all a bit tired as they have all been working overtime so it was a little challenging to get the energy up but I did my best! We reviewed a bit from last week, practiced some past, and passive tense in relation to the topic. We did a fun variation of ‘This is an apple’ where we learned dates of some of the most important inventions of time. Then we did a listening activity around the main uses of these inventions. Though the energy was low, it turned out to be a pretty good class :)

They both got great practice with ordinals and common abbreviations used when navigating maps and reading addresses

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): The title isn’t related to the theme but since I wasn’t feeling very great yesterday I decided to let them know that by making it the title of the lesson (and it’s a useful expression :) We also learned a few other expressions about feelings like ‘happy as a clam’, ‘down in the dumps’. We then moved into the topic of ‘Futuristic Inventions’ where we learned about things like; google glass, jetpacks, 3D printers, multicopters and self-driving cars. Super fun! We didn’t get very far as the main activity involved learners getting a card with a description of an item and they had to read it to the group who were instructed to write it down. It took quite some time to just get through 2 of them and I felt a little frustration coming from the lower level learners so I transitioned into a game of Bingo for the last bit of class. I think that was a great plan :)

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Good class on gardening! Mostly we just learned vocabulary for several different garden tools.. The one learner kept saying ‘oh I have that tool but I don’t know what it’s called’- literally for almost all of the images we were using. Pretty cool :) We then practiced our new words via ‘This is an apple’ activity which was super fun!

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): We wrapped up the last topic of inventions by playing the bingo game from last week that we didn’t get to finish. We then practiced a little dialogue about which futuristic invention we would buy if we could (money not a factor). We then transitioned into the next topic, Local Flora starting with a word cloud where we learned several new vocab words. They really love the word clouds :) We focused on mushrooms that are native to Oregon and learned the names of about 5-6 of them and talked a little bit about which ones we’ve tried and our favorites of those. Will pick up where we left off next week..
