We've been able to make the most of the little class time we had this first part of the school year. The range of activities we've done has kept our lessons interesting.
There has been a nice balance of new grammatical constructions, advanced vocabulary and expressions, reading silently and aloud, and writing essays on a variety of topics. Reading the book The Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson has been especially enjoyable as the language used in this work is vivid and story is engaging and relevant. It has led to great discussions and presented a lot of valuable language input, including learning about literary devices such as simile and metaphor.
We're looking forward to the next few weeks, working hard to recuperate lost time and finish this calendar year strong.
