"Material covered: -Review of descriptive adjectives through conversation. - Months, dates and numbers. - Pronunciation of numbers. Homework: Review months, dates & numbers."
"The student wanted to brush up on her numbers, so that is the bulk of what we did today. We did a number of exercises, including doing basic math where she had to listen to and come up with numbers in French, constructing narratives about the ages and birth years of her family and pets, and talking about the weather and looking at a local report, while she practiced numbers by telling the low and the high for each day. We did a little work with time as well, talking about how hours are written differently in French and in English. After this, towards the end, we did some work with grammar. By the end of our session, she seemed far more familiar with numbers and getting on her way to understanding the composite past. We're planning on working next week with prepositions, particularly those you use to discuss different amounts of things. For extra practice, I told her to try and look over her notes from last year's classes about the prepositions we'll be working on Tuesday, and told her to try to spend at least five minutes every day doing something in French (listening, reading, writing, or speaking with her dad, who also speaks French), just to keep herself used to hearing and using it."
