It was my last day in class today. I walked around and helped students form sentences with given phrases in a textbook. We talked about verbs and adverbs and used them in the sentences. I helped translate the words to the girl who does not understand much English. It was exciting seeing how much better she has gotten at understanding. Once the students were done with their sentences they found books to read and I listened to one of the students read.
Played ping pong and air hockey with other little partners.
For this service, I went to the Saint Peter High school to help out Profe Englehorn with oral examinations again. I arrived and there were two other Gustavus students with me. This was a very enjoyable tip to the High school, and many of the students are quite good at Spanish for only their second year of a foreign language. The visit started out by asking the students some questions about Christmas, songs, New Year's, and Three Kings Day. Next, we asked a few questions on the list for the oral exam and had multiple answer each one. Then we paired up and headed out into the hallway to administer the exams. The oral exams were thirteen questions. After the exam, we contemplated scores and waited for the next student to come into the hallway. Overall, the students did pretty well.
With today being the last day of my engagement assignment, we had discussed the topic of adverbs and verbs in sentences and how to apply it to everyday work. The kids had to write out 8 sentences using different verb and adverb combinations.
It was my last day in Mrs. Hartfiel's class. It was sad because the kids kept asking if I could work with them next week and I had to tell them I wasn't coming back. I did tell them I would visit next semester. I helped the kids play a game about reading words.
Hung out with Lucas today for the last time until spring semester. We exchanged Christmas gifts; he got me some delicious caramel corn and I got him a Gustavus football! It was a very enjoyable day hanging out with my little buddy!
