Edwin had some great questions again today. Especially about grammar. This ended up being a very important discussion bc when ss were writing their own sentences, infinitives kept coming up. Fernando originally wrote a sentence: "I had to stepped up and be a leader"— after the mini-lesson, he saw the error and was able to correct it. Ana wrote: "I had to worked extra hours" and fixed it. And Jose Bravo, who struggles a bit with the grammar-heavy stuff, wrote correct sentences naturally! "I had to go to the second floor."
Jose did an excellent job today. He'll often say "All this stuff is confusing, but I feel like I know the right answer in my head." He's been struggling a lot but really showed his analytical strength today -
