"Today was a better session with the students, although there is still room for improvement. Both started out in good spirits, and we finished the second half of the homophones worksheet. Again, I am very happy that they are having more of an understanding of grammar. We also went over their science homework from last week. It was very proactive of them to decide to write the rock classification words in both English and French. We also got through the comprehension story without much difficulty."
