Big Universe gave us a 30-day trial for the conference. There are only 14 books in Russian on the site, but I started reading anyway so that the trial doesn’t run out before I do. The kids were entranced! They loved reading kids’ books together instead of during FVR! They were very proud of what they understood, and they wouldn’t let us stop reading. It’s pretty funny to be in a situation when kids are saying, “Keep reading!”
I was all ready to grade a re-write by Susie’s method: highlight the first ten mistakes that they should really not be making, and use that as the grammar grade, depending on how far down the page I got.
Tomorrow. I’ll do it tomorrow.
