[I have a modest collection of unpublished drafts in various states of completion from at least five years ago, and I thought I’d publish some from time to time.]
From conversation time in Level 2:
“I’m sad… because… I want to discuss…. with neighbors… but…. can not.”
“My daughter, she sees the children playing outside, and she want to go with them. But I don’t let her. Because I can’t speak to them. I don’t have English.”
Worth remembering as teachers and as neighbors, I think.
