Today was the spring celebration! It was so much fun seeing my learner present her work, and I could tell she was proud of what she had accomplished. And people seemed to love our poster and topic! Another great semester together, I can't wait for the fall!
Today is a bit of a sad day because it is our final meeting. But, I am so looking forward to tutoring my learner again next year. For the last day, we made some painted cards for my learner’s family member’s birthday. We are really excited for the end of year PAL banquet!
Today was our last lesson for the semester :( We made a fantastic poster together showcasing the work we have done, and I can't wait for everyone to see it at the celebration! When we finished, we watched a little bit of Disney's Pocahontas as it tied in with one of the women we have talked about this semester.
Today was yet another great day! We worked on some math and some painting. We also started putting together our final project into a diorama. We added the clay living room to a shoe box, glued it, and painted the background. I think that my learner feels like she achieved something awesome!
For my learner and I's last baking lesson of the semester, we decided to conclude the breakfast theme by making strawberry waffles. We have never used a waffle maker before, but we figured it out together! It honestly has been such a fun semester baking together and we are excited to showcase all of our goodies at the celebration!
We once again continued to read the Restaurant at the End of the Universe. By the end of this session, we just have a little bit left! We should finish our reading and discussion of the book next week, which is perfect timing because that is our last session of the semester.
Today was our last lesson before our preparation for the celebration, and we learned about Pocahontas! As an avid Disney fan, my learner was very excited to talk about the movie, and just as surprised as me to learn how different it was from real life. (Hour added for prep)
Today was another great day with my learner. We happened upon our final project almost randomly when making some clay models. We decided that perhaps we could recreate my learner’s living room, in clay. We are looking forward to how it is going to turn out!
Wanting to make healthy recipes, my learner and I made strawberry muffins. Even though we burned the muffins a little, we still had a lot of fun making these muffins and it was nice to make a healthier alternative for a dessert.
Continued to read the book we have been focusing on this semester. My learner is still enjoying and is always very happy when we read. We are now about 3/4 of the way done!
