    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): We started out by spelling our names around the circle. Then we talked about our favorite foods. We would ask the person next to us about their food and more details about it. Then we ended it pairing up and having a conversation where the other person would have to repeat the sentence perfectly.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Only two students showed up so it was a small class. We started with the alphabet sheet and yelled and spelled our names. It was followed by the title of today’s class. Next we did a short word search with some terms related to parks. We moved on to naming the park facility symbols. Jessica dictated a series of questions and answers about parks. It also served as good dialogue practice. We concluded the class with trailing a map of the Tualatin Hills Park.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): This was Charlie’s final class. Patrik attended in the capacity of assistant as part of the “You’re the Boss, Now” experience. Charlie started the class with alphabet listen and point, and some letter and number writing practice, followed by a three person dialogue practicing introductions. He started by modeling the dialogue with Patrik and I multiple times, then swapping the students in one at a time, until the students were filling all three parts in the dialogue. After a word search using the great outdoors word cloud, and some practice with outdoor activity words, Charlie passed around pictures of various outdoor activities and asked the students to create sentences about the pictures. Afterwards, we had a discussion about the pictures, and then about our own favorite (or not!) outdoor activities. The class ended with partner conversation practice.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): After warm up activities, Priya did a dictation progression with the title of the lesson (The Best Things in Life are at the Beach). She then showed the students photos of beach activities on her phone and asked the students to suggest sentences to describe the activities in the photos, doing a dictation progression for each photo. Teresa and Maria Luisa had made food for the class, so we took a break to share the food (Yum!) Then Priya segued into a video about the perfect marshmallow roasting technique, and asked students to write down words that they heard in the video. She finished the class with a round robin using beach items (sunblock, beach hat, seashell).

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Started with alphabet sheet, first going through and saying letter by letter in a set, then passing through again doing triplets of each set. Spelled out the names letter by letter, then tried to write them down. Jessica then said something she liked and had folks mimic a gesture to indicate if they liked it or not, and then went around the circle and had folks say what they like with a gesture. Jessica then dictated a flier for activities in the park. Jessica ended with a short question and response.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Since we only had two students, Grace asked if they’d like to go out to eat and have a conversational class. (She offered to treat if the students ordered in English. Thank you, Grace!) Since I know the area best, I was asked to suggest locations. We decided Ava Roasteria was a good option. Maria Luisa drove us all, and got some very impromptu practice taking directions in English, which she handled very well. Maria Luisa and Teresa ordered their drinks in English as promised, and we got a couple fancy pastries to share (Again, thank you, Grace!) We sat outside and ate while having English conversation practice. Topics included work, family, language learning, and more.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Jessica had a lot of variety during the class. She started with a word search document and then we looked at the different plants on a sheet of paper and passed it around as we named the different plants. Then we ended with a conversation about the plants. Overall great class.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): We started with some dictation. The students noted down some vocabulary that is in news these days. That started a good discussion about the problems the students faced coming to a new country and how they have been dealing with it. They shared their stories and their opinions. Since we had only two students, both high level, and both wanting to talk, we let the discussion continue throughout the calss. As they talked, Grace and I helped them with certain words or phrases they did not understand.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific):
    Had a late start due to students showing up late but we started off with ABC’s then yell and spell. Then we started talking about summer and summer essentials. We then had a dictation conversation. Then worked on “This is a __ A what? A__, Oh! A __” Students had a lot of fun with that, practiced on saying and writing what is related to summer such as sunglasses, sunscreen, head lamp, ice cream, swimming pool, etc… then we ended it with a competition dividing into groups of 2 and we had them write down as many words as they can that is related to summer, definitely had a good laugh from that. Overall, great class although it was slightly hot.
