Computer activities: teacher demonstrates web activities for stationwork

Teacher comment

We all hear, we all see, first, what we have to do.  We all hear the vocabulary  together.  Louis has an idea, for example, he says, oh, this is hot.  And in fact, it's not hot, it's a bit complicated. It's the sun, so it's sunny, so you can explain, and then talk about the weather.

Learner comments

In describing the lesson, one says "I learned words for weather, since we worked on weather, we learned some words that I didn't know."  Another adds, "we revised the weather like she said, then [we did] all that on the computer"
