    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific):
    We began with alphabet sheets and yell and spell names. We followed this with the title of today’s lesson and modeled a dialogue for them. They wrote this down, then practiced with each other. We then got different pictures of places of nature features present at Oxbow and did the, “This is a _” activity. We also did a word search and a short dictation at the end.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): I did “try my recipe” for Marc. I had to make a lesson plan for Mark and he had to teach the class using my lesson plan. Overall it was a good class. We had 4 new learners today! At times it was confusing to lead the class because it was kind of a practice of using my techniques and methods that Marc wasn’t sure how to conduct!

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): After warm up activities, Sheila led a word search using a blueberry fact sheet. She then did a dictation progression using a short dialogue about berry season, after which students practiced the dictation. After that she did an activity that got everyone out of their seats, a body part listen and point. She finished with a multi-part activity that began with her drawing a fruit on the board, asking the students to guess the name of the fruit, asking the students to guess the spelling, picking a student who had called out the correct spelling and having them lead a yell and spell for the rest of the class, writing the name of the fruit on the board, and finally asking students to indicate with a gesture whether they liked, loved, or didn’t like the fruit at all.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): A very nice class with many new learners. We started with Alphabet, then yell n spell then Dictation and then we went out to the Midland Park and practiced English using local flora in the Park. We heard many positive feedback from new comers. One new learner was very satisfied how the class was conducted. Everyone at the end was very satisfied and everyone thanked Marc for a great class. I missed Marc’s numbers because I had to find out missing attendance so it took me some time and attention but I will input number once I receive them from Marc.
