my new student

My new student who just transferred into class is doing well. I have slowed down the pace of my delivery for her, and am back to translating many, many structures and pointing to the question words so that she can follow what we are doing. But, I am continuing with instruction for the rest of the class, we are covering new structures and asking new stories. I think we will all get through this ok.

I did realize on Tuesday that I have forgotten to explain certain class policies/procedures to her. For instance, on Free Writes students are only scored against themselves. The biggest thing is going to be making her feel comfortable in class to ask questions before she becomes overwhelmed.
