"We covered the alphabet, greetings, and goodbyes in Spanish. We used book exercises, conversation practice, and a role play game."
"For this lesson, we began a section on foods, starting with fruits. We went through the vocabulary list I made them, and then we started working with some play fruits that I brought in. I had them go through the fruits and match them. Finally we played a game where I went around the room and gave them an image, and then they told me the name of the fruit in Spanish."
"I ran through the Spanish verbs with the student. He did very well without looking at any notes. We got to the point where we were doing some entry level Spanish conversation. We're still working with the personal pronouns with the appropriate verb form, and I'm confident that by next week, he will be handling any of the verb forms quite well."
"The student did really well today! We finished our work with first-declension nouns, and then we worked through the entire explanation/exercise set for the third conjugation and third conjugation io verbs."
"Today we started with declension and conjugation charts. We did a few extra to make sure the student had the right declensions and conjugations in his head. Then we parsed and translated simple sentences step-by-step, because I wanted to make sure he knew how to navigate sentences without my help. He struggled a lot, but I think by the end of the session he got the idea. We ended with a lot of vocab review, which he is doing much better with. We will continue to work on this next session."
"We did a lot of review today. I wanted to make sure that the students were still working on their vocabulary, so I quizzed them on all their words. The first 20 minutes was all review on vocabulary, nouns, verbs, and practical Latin sayings. They've learned a lot, so sometimes it's hard to keep everything straight. I moved onto lesson 9, which were the numbers 1-5. They seemed to enjoy that, and they came up with lots of English derivatives for the numbers. We ended the session with "fun practice," which is a drawing assignment that they must label in Latin afterwards. I left them with homework to learn how to actually spell out the numbers in Latin."
