My learner and I continued learning about the structure of the army. We reviewed key terms about the hierarchy of the army, and Robert practiced saying them. At the same time, we examined images of these various groups in the army, which my learner enjoyed seeing to fully understand and visualize the experience of these soldiers and their leaders. As my learner repeated the various army vocabulary, he was having difficulty with phonetics and had previously mentioned he wanted to work on that. As a result, we transitioned into writing out the alphabet and identifying vowels and reviewing the sounds that consonants make.

Today we searched for, read, interpreted and wrote down a recipe for gluten free mac and cheese. We then "shopped" for the ingredients and found that it would cost around $27 to make this recipe, and discussed what that would mean when grocery shopping.

Today, I focused on getting social media graphics completed for the week. Facebook event pages need to be made for the public and PD events, so I spent most of the day drafting those and graphics for the cover photo, Instagram/Twitter posts, etc.
