A Peek Into Our Class

A Peek Into Our Class

October 14, 2015

Dear WinkWorld Readers,

As some of you know, I continue to teach part-time in the English as a New Language (ENL) endorsement program at Black Hills State University (BHSU).  The teachers in the program come from various districts around the Black Hills and other districts in Wyoming. Mostly our classes are online (D2L and Collaborate), which I enjoy, but I love the Face-to-Face periodic classes.  Here is a glimpse into our class last Saturday, 10.11.15.

One of the teachers brought her daughter; through the years I have had a lot of busy teachers bring their own children to our classes, and I have always loved the experience.

Here is Jeslyn settling into our class.

This semester I discovered that the Language Experience Approach (LEA) is new for many of the teachers.

See Language Experience Approach here.

This group is also interested in learning the various approaches to Readers’ & Writers’ workshop.

One of the teachers brought a photo of her granddaughter reading. Hope you enjoy this, as much as we did.

As the class had recently focused on the treasured books of Mem Fox, one teacher shared a class photo of her reading  “Let’s Count Goats.”

Finally, I read “Sweet Pea & Friends: The SheepOver” by John and Jennifer Churchman.
