Ss learned the concept of routines through the expression "on Tuesdays", "on Fridays", etc.
During a sentence scramble, Miguel kept pronouncing eats cake as eats cookies. I asked him what the difference was. So, he started singing the Happy Birthday song and said: “Danny Meyer’s wife. Today is her birthday. She eats cake.” He asked if what he said was correct. Most certainly was. - unless she had cookies...
While birthdays might not be a routine, he did a great job of explaining his interpretation of a word without using Spanish. Bravo!
