English Oct ’15
Our English club with the Elena Doamna orphanage students started on Friday, Oct 2 and went off without a hitch ! We are reviewing what we went over last year, namely verbs in the present tense, pronouns, possessive pronouns, adjectives, and prepozitions, and practicing reading. This is the same group we worked with last year, mostly in the 6th-8th grade, and we look forward to advancing their talents this fall! We opened up a small space that we are renting close-by to the Orphanage to have the English lessons, as opposed to going into the Orphanage like last year. We find we can have more control over the classroom if it is in a neutral space. We also started up an open English club on Thursdays from 4-6pm in response to the request for helping more students with understanding English. The students who come Thursdays are from the Elena Doamna and Ion Creanga Orphanages. We have 12 students this year in our Friday club, and between 6-8 students on Thursdays, but we are spreading the word.
