learn something new...

Here I am "grading" students' reading logs from last week. The logs are just to show me that students were engaged for that time, and attempting to read in Spanish. At the end of each log I ask for students to write down words they learned today while reading. They can be words they learned through context, words they had "learned" once before but never stuck, or words they got stuck on and had to look up after the reading time was over. And more than anything? I'm learning new words, just from reading their logs.
