This month, we met less often for English club at Elena Doamna Orphanage because of vacation around Easter. The times we did meet, we learned 3 more verbs in present tense, to feel, to make, and to like, and practiced making sentences with them, and we worked on the days of the week, the months, and the seasons. During Easter break and because we didn’t hold regular classes, we decided to do something together with the kids from English club. After we recited a poem about Easter for the director of the orphanage, we went bowling together. They said their 8 line English poem with courage, but we still have some work to do on pronunciation. Afterwards, we had an outing of cakes and juice at a cafe, and went to the bowling alley. Through stories, songs, and poems the children at the Elena Doamna Center are hearing more and more English on Fridays, and it is our hope that they begin to grasp it easier. It seems the thing that most children here have difficulty in is putting sentences together, although they have a wide knowledge of vocab. We are still working with them, pray for them in their studies!
The children at Casa Ray continue to be devoted in their studies and are very attent when we hold weekly lessons. I have English lessons with classes 3 & 6 on Tuesdays, and 4,7, & 8 on Thursdays. We also took a few of the kids bowling during Easter break, who were sick last time we had an outing.
