Mackenzie and I made some complicated paper airplanes that we figured out how to do on youtube and the little paper fortune teller things I would make as a kid. She thought it was really fun to fly the paper airplanes and then chase after them.

Esta experiencia fue un poco difícil. Los estudiantes fueron distraídos por una razón y también hay un problema con tiempo porque la maestra tiene una clase con los niños a 9:35 o 9:40 y no hay mucho tiempo para nuestros. Número son más fáciles para los niños entender y la lección es interesante para los. Mi juego es difícil porque los niños necesitan contar y buscar para la combinación correcta pero me gusta que los otros niños se ayudan los con problemas. Intente enseñar cómo contar en Español y algunos tienen problemas con esto pero la mayoría aprendieron. En general, la experiencia fue buena porque en el final de nuestra lección los niños no quisieron que salimos.
During the hour I was at St. Peter High School I watched student's presentations of their Día de los muertos projects. I also made a key for a worksheet they did on conjugating and using the verb tener. They did the worksheet in class and when they turned it in I helped some of them correct it and explained why they got certain questions wrong and why another answer was right. I observed that the students understood how to conjugate tener pretty well however many of them had trouble with when or when not to use "tener + que" and I was hopefully able to clarify that to some of them. Many of the students seemed very willing to learn how to correctly do this and I felt like I connected with a few students who were struggling with the worksheet as I helped them. In future sessions I hope to continue to work with students who might be struggling with certain concepts such as verb conjugation. I also hope that in the future if students have questions they can feel comfortable asking me. Through this session I feel like I gained more confidence as the students began to trust me and I was able to help them with their Spanish.
There was no school last Friday, so today we finished our movie. I continued to help the kids with words that they did not know, and it was a lot of fun. I knew the movie very well, so it was interesting for the students who were seeing it for the first time. The movie dealt a little with racism, and the teacher paused the movie to explain some parts better to the students.
