The first week was a roller coaster. We encountered challenges and successes throughout the week. The challenges were generally linked to transportation. We will not have the UNA mini-bus for the first day of week two. The students and I met this challenge head on and came up with a working solution for the days that we do not have access to the mini-bus. Some will ride their bicycles, some will take public transportation while others will use a private taxi. The successes came in the form of support from the parents and the communities from where the students come.
I've created a "Memory" game for the students to use to learn the plethora of vocabulary from week one and part of week two. I will add cards as we increase the vocabulary. I hope this helps the words stick.
I'm hoping that week two will level out a bit. I think I'm fairly prepared with most of the materials. I still need to print the color copies. I plan to do that after class tomorrow.
