    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): This learner only came for a short time today so I wasn’t sure if I should even include her as an attendee but I figured since she came at all, it counts! We just talked briefly about the weather, her weekend, and I asked her a few past tense questions to practice with.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Really good class today- just the energy, dynamics, all of it. Plus we got to talk to a learner that recently retired on FaceTime! She called one of the other learners from Laos and we all got to say hello. It was so great! We spent the majority of the class talking about the ‘Opiod Crisis’ here in the U.S.. I subscribe to a website called ESL Library that has lots of cool themed lesson plans with various activities and I found some good materials there to use. We learned vocabulary like; fentanly, addictive, laced, stigma, overdose, etc.. and one learner mentioned that she has heard or seen a lot of the words and never knew what they meant so she was glad to have learned them today. It was definitely an interesting topic to them and I’m glad we ‘went there’. I think a lot of teachers feel a little weird/uncomfortable talking about things like drugs in the classroom- myself included, until today..I found out that it’s totally fine! And they want to know more about the things they are hearing on the news and in their communities. It was really awesome, actually :)

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): One learner came today and she was pretty much on time! She is not much past the beginner level so we kept it simple but fun. We did alphabet first and then reviewed body parts in a couple different ways. Then we did some dictation with some sentences related to the body i.e. what color is your hair/are your eyes, and then transitioned nicely into talking about our ‘morning’ routines in the simple present, i.e., I wake up at 7:00, I brush my teeth, eat breakfast, etc. All of it was great practice for this learner :)

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): It was an ok class- I planned but it just didn’t flow that well or just felt too unstructured. Which I think is sometimes fine with this group and I know they were interested in the topic which was ‘Medical Marijuana’. I knew it was ok to ‘go there’ especially after a side conversation a few weeks back when I learned that one particular learner goes to a store in her neighborhood to buy a topical pain relief oil. We did start with some dictation and round robin type q/a (have you been to a dispensary yet?) but then after that it was more discussion/casual conversation which I think made it feel so unstructured. However, it worked especially knowing that because they all speak the same language and were able to translate for the lowest level learner, no one was left out. Overall, good content, decent class and they were very interested to learn that you can use medicinal marijuana and not get ‘high’ or ‘stoned’ (yep, they all knew those words!)

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): As it was our last class before a 2 week break and I didn’t want to start a new theme, I just prepared a review/fun n games type class. We focused on simple past tense and the verb ‘Do’ and then played 20 questions. It was our first time doing that and while it had challenges, it went fairly well- we laughed a ton! All in all fun class :) Then heather and I discussed the plan for the next few months…
