    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): I brought some different food items and had the learners explore the Nutrition Facts labels on them, even doing a little math to get how many calories, fat grams, sugar grams, etc were in each container. I closed by dictating the song “Bread and Butter.”

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): An excellent first Thursday in 2018! We had our 3 most consistent learners, as well as 3 new learners, including one young child. It was great to start the year off with so many new faces. Lizzy reflected that she would like to do some more learning about how to engage such low level learners with respect and consideration. All in all, the class went well, with higher level learners really engaging with our new friends. It was great. The only downside is the frustration with the box continuing to disappear. We have gone for months without anyone bothering it. I’m unclear as to why this keeps happening, but when we have to rotate facilitators, this seems to become an issue.

    MLK’s eloquent, timeless, and profound words were again brought to new light by this hardworking group.Two learners from Ethiopia in this country for less than one month came back from last week (a triumph!). Their efforts were well supported by the others. The need to develop more variety in lesson planning was discussed.

    It was revealed at the end of class it was this DJ’s birthday. Brownie packages (rated G) were distributed, hugs were exchanged, and 2 supported rounds of “Happy Birthday” were sung. A warm and delightful ending of class on a rainy cold night.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): The use of the skeleton song (dem bones) was harder than I expected, as many of the names of bones were difficult. I use a small skeleton for a visual aid.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Lizzy brought some fantastic map props tonight to get us talking about how the city is sectioned. (N, NE, NW, SE, and SW). She also did an activity that got us moving and practicing where the directions are in relation to one another. She opened the class with a candle and a few words about our kind friend, Esteban, who will be missed. And Jacob came and brought his fabulous energy to keep us moving as well. Great class.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Class was a lot of dictated writing, which is being used far too much by me. The class was engaged in the activities, but with low energy. The class lightened up considerably with laughing once we got up and pointed to the parts of the body in the song “Dem Bones”.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific Started out with Keli’s well planned lesson with lot’s of maps and props, but it was quickly realized our single learner would benefit much more with an individual lesson which included dictation and dialogue of favorite foods and recipes from Costa Rica and the local geography of NE portland.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Class was small tonight (2) possibly because of the snow last week—there had not been a class since 2/15. Might be a good idea for the school to remind students that the classes are still going.
    One student was frustrated, likes things words spelled out for her rather than trying to write them out. Any ideas as to how to approach this are appreciated.
