  1. I would love to share out. My targeted assessments (my first 6 months of instruction) got thrown out. I only have NT. If it is anything, I see more cookie cutter stories in freewrites with targeted instruction and more original work with a wide variety of vocabulary.

    I had an unmotivated student who is going through foster care use “pumpkin” in a freewrite. I had forgotten the word myself. It was a story with 60 words in 10 minutes. His was the lowest but it was still a complete mini-story.

    1. The kid is going through tough times. He was in my class for French 1. Now in French 2, it seems like things got bad at home. He has been negative and I make sure that he is listened to but reminding him that negative comments will not be allowed in class. In his last freewrite – we have done about 3 this whole year only– he wrote about a character who was a pumpkin. My point here is that this kid used a word that had not been used in FOREVER. Maybe only one story. Yet, he had used it in a story successfully. He did not feel proud of it much when I had pointed it out in class. Maybe because classmates where there with him. Like many kids in my French 2, they are going through academic hardships due to homework, projects, exams etc… It’s all too much for them. It is hard for them to realize that they are making progress since every subject matter at their school is either performance based or product based.

  2. …every subject matter at their school is either performance based or product based….

    We pray for our students, how much they are going through at home, etc. Let us help them and not be a part of their burdens. May they have actual human interaction at least in one class period during their days. May they not be destroyed by school.
