    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): My favorite part of this class was working with the song little birdie. It felt difficult to get a lot of lower skill folks going, but we heard their voices pretty loudly by the end. Due to computer problems, late update

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Class started and ended on time. It was the Joshua’s second silent class and it was smoother this time. It was more poised and we were all very connected. We noticed how one of the learners has remarkably progressed when she was able to write by herself with confidence and almost without spelling mistakes. It was very enjoyable.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): A pretty nice class for a rainy day – but one learner, who I hadn’t seen in a while, came back, and though he is helpful, he makes jokes and he hurt the feelings of a longtime participant.. they kind of have a back and forth thing. It was not helped by another participant, a male, also being helpful who was just.. over the top. I didn’t hear the comment, or how she expressed her frustration and she apologized several times, but definitely saw that she was leaning toward the women she was near. Ultimately, I’d like for this to never happen again.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific):
    The class started a few minutes late and ended on time. We started with consumables and the title of the class. That included a lot of choral response and the learners took turns reading the few sentences. After that, we stood up and did a few listen and do exercises that had to do with the 4th of July and barbecuing. The rest of the class was spent on listen and writing down a story about a 4th of July celebration.

    Score: 38 (Preparation: 6; Technique: 6; Engagement: 7; Connection: 7; Poise: 6; Reflection: 6).

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific):

    This class began around 12:11, due to no learners arriving until that time. We had 1 new learner. Warmup activities were followed by title of today’s lesson dictation, then round robin about whether learners will come with us next week to Nadaka Nature Park. Several said they would come. Document search of the bird brochure was a big hit. “Little Birdie” was great fun to sing and the learners enjoyed singing to Jane’s accompaniment on the ukulele. She tried to show the Pete Seeger video on her IPad but the video would not play. She realized much later that she was probably not connected to Rockwood’s wireless network. After a short period of physical exercise the class ended at 1:55. There was much camaraderie and several learners helped each other.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): The learners were running a little late so we started class a few minutes after 6. We jumped in to the alphabet sheet and soon moved on to the title of the class’ lesson and a short dialog activity. Then, Julie had the learners write down a few sentences with key summer words and we did a couple word searches. Classes ended right on time after listening, singing, and writing the lyrics to a song.

    Sorry for the late update here. Class went well. The 13 colonies content is dense and difficult for learners to understand. Nevertheless, Arien worked really hard on his lesson plan. It was a good opportunity for him to practice time management between activities. We did a lot of writing of dialogues and a document search.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific):well to start we where on time we had 4 new learner’s & 4 regular learner’s few were late.
    As for the lesson plan assignment it was abit of tugging with the learner’s we saw the learner’s where not to even the more advanced learner’s where closer to the MC so the it was easier to see but not to see on the other end which needed abit more time & help we had a great example of why seating effects our lessons & learner’s. We all learn as well as us as staff of the program.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): This class went really well. Arien put a lot of preparation into the lesson plan. He brought a School House Rock video and song and we did several rounds of singing with it. We had several languages and English levels represented in the classroom today. There was a lot of really great learning taking place as the seating and working in pairs/groups was well facilitated despite the potential for struggle. I think understanding the map of the colonies is difficult because 1) it’s significance is difficult to organically and culturally translate as a “real world” material 2) it’s a partial area that seems out of natural geographic context 3) it’s an old political map. Our document search and use of it wasn’t terrible or useless, however it was a bit confusing for some and we just had to roll with it as best we could. All in all, class was well executed and the learners were engaged the whole time.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific):class started a little late while we waited for learners but ended on time. After the alphabet sheet and yell and spell with names we did the lesson title. Most of the class was spent on a dialog that they listened to, read, spoke, role played, and repeated. For the remainder of the class, the learns wrote down a list of summer activities such as swimming and volleyball techniques. Volleyball was a great word using confusable letters.

    This class began at 1:35. We had 2 new learners. After warmup activities plus lesson title dictation the Declaration of Independence was passed out and a document search ensued. We then saw a music video of “The Shot Heard ‘Round the World”. Part of the song was dictated. A brief TPR (standing physical exercise) followed and class was dismissed at 3:05 p.m.
