    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific):
    We started with talking about 9/11- first did a short title with the well-known phrase ‘Never forget’. We then practiced a question/answer round robin style; ‘what were you doing when you heard the news about the terrorist attacks’? Everyone remembered exactly what they were doing and they all learned the new expression ‘I couldn’t believe my eyes’. They loved that! We did a listening activity about the Heroes of 9/11 and then learned a few new vocab words like ‘debris, cloned and hijacked’. We didn’t have a ton of time left but switched over to yoga talk for the last 20 minutes. We reviewed our poses, practiced some and then learned new phrases that one would hear in a yoga class like ‘Interlace your fingers, stand with feet hip width apart, etc..’. We ended with a TPR using our new phrases. I learned that 2 learners are retiring in October! So the class will go down to 4 once they do. I was invited to their retirement party on a Friday. The learner who was there told me she wants me to come because she plans to thank me in her speech. Hello, tears! So sweet, I will definitely plan to go :)

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific):
    This was a very go with the flow type class.. The newer learner was the first to arrive, and right on time! I started reviewing some of the basic questions we practiced last week and then learner 2 came in and I included her into this activity, having them ask eachother ‘getting to know you’ type questions. The 3rd learner came in and we continued these types of questions with her. The newest learner was having difficulty to remember to use the s ending on the he/she/it form so we practiced this for a bit. We ended with practicing ordinal numbers and speaking our addresses aloud. I think I’ll focus on maps/addresses next week.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific):
    When class began, there was so much fruit on the table; plums, pears, prunes, apples and mangoes. Learners were offering each other their bounties and it gave me an idea to practice this/that/these/those. It was so good! We practiced ‘what are those/what is that, whose are those/whose is that and then one learner brought up ‘That belongs to me’ so we practiced that phrase a bunch too. Really great practice over all! And then we ate the fruit :) This took up a good chunk of class but we ended with yoga talk- first a listening activity with some highlighted vocab words related to yoga and then we talked more in depth about those vocabulary words. Next week will be the last class for 2 learners who are retiring :(

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): We mostly worked with ordinal numbers and addresses today. We talked about what part of town we live in and practiced a variety of addresses. I’m not sure how, but somehow the topic of siblings came up and then we were talking about how many siblings we have and that went into practice with comparisons (who’s older/oldest, younger/youngest). Everyone was so into it that we didn’t realize we almost went over time! That’s when you know it’s a good class :)

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific):
    Since it was the last class for the 2 learners who are retiring, and I had planned to give them both cards and chocolate as a farewell gift, I decided I would do a whole lesson on greeting cards. It was actually pretty fun! I brought in a few different cards and we practiced talking about occasions, who we give cards to, etc.. Come to find out, they don’t really give/send cards and the only time they do is New Years, and that’s pretty rare these days, they said. Regardless, they were intrigued by the cards I brought in and also because they were confused by the messages (language) in some of them, we focused on that for a bit. I wanted to have them all sign the 2 cards so we looked at some ‘common messages to write in a retirement card’ so they could get some ideas. We all signed the 2 cards and said our good byes. It was very bittersweet and I was asked again to attend the retirement party so I plan to be there for sure :)
