I followed a student named Victor to and from classes. He has only been in the United States for three months, and uses google translate to communicate with me. Although he does not know much English, he is very good at math. He can solve crazy math problems using mental math and it blows my mind how fast he can do them. He also took a test in science class today, and he was not prepared at all. He can improve by taking better notes so he can be better prepared.
For my last day of the semester, we celebrated with candy after we read one on one. I noticed that the kids have improved a lot, and are able to read the full stories in the allotted times.
We counted money together, and learned how to buy things as if they were at a store.
The first graders received new Read Naturally packets, and they all got shout outs for reading so well. We also counted money together, but we need more practice with coins.
They learned about the election, and they got the opportunity to vote. We also solved some addition problems on the board, and I can see they have improved greatly.
