Ten Verbs

Five of our 15 Apoyo Escolar students have an english quiz tomorrow, and so we all began studying last Thursday in anticipation for it. The quiz consists of ten verbs, but for some unknown reason these verbs are so daunting to our five 6th graders that endless flashcards and white boards and repeated writings and competitions still hadn't drilled them into their minds when we all parted ways today at four. Let me know what you think; it's like the gameshow "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?"...but real.

To drive- Manejar
To study- Estudiar
To play- Jugar
To eat- Comer
To cut- Cortar
To think- Pensar
To write- Escribir
To need- Necesitar
To read- Leer
To drink- Tomar

And that's the list. Keep your fingers crossed for them tomorrow morning during their exam!
