Level 1 - North End Grill
This week students learned the use of 'have to' as a way of expressing when we are obligated to do something. I have to go. or I have to drink water. Raul instantly noticed that the pronunication was 'haaf to' rather than the softer 'haavv to'. Good observation.
We read a story and slowly pieced it together, figuring out what 2 receivers who worked at a grocery store had to do. Felix is a really good reader and notices subtle differences. His pronunciation needs support but he's reading and saying all of the words. So, when it came time to read, he became 'teacher' and checked Junior and Raul to make sure they put the correct form - have to or has to.
