I handed chana a piece of paper with 3 things written (in hebrew)
1. write hebrew story (est 20 min)
2. chumash (20 min)
3. shemona esrei (est 15 min)
I asked her to please fill out times when she planned to do those activities. she made a 12 next to the first one, a 1 next to the 2nd, and a "after my plans" next to the 3rd. she drew a neutral face next to the story, an unhappy face next to chumash, and a rejoicing face next to "plans."
At ten minutes to 12, she got a notebook and writing utensil. I told her to take her ipad to look up words she didn't know. She had to re-download the translator app, which she apparently deleted due to lack of use. She told me to say, "Class, you may begin," at precisely 12. I don't know what she did for those last few minutes. Thought of ideas? Tried out the app? At 12, she reminded me to say it, so I did.
After 12 minutes, she asked if she could stop. She had written almost 3/4 of a page in small letters. So I said yes. I said tomorrow I would check it with her, and we would correct the first draft together.
Now, even though it is 12:30 and not 1, she is doing Chumash. 12:40, and we finished. Chazara of half of sheni, chazara of the 2 (complicated) pesukim we did yesterday, and 3 new pesukim.
I predict that since the 3rd time was vague and not specific, she will not initiate it. But we shall see.
We shall also see if I have the oomph to keep up with this and follow through. Tomorrow the story draft, and today shemona esrei translation.
