Rang Mháire (Mary's Class)


Last Time (October 8) {Back to Top}(back to top)


The small group and I did a noun warmup with the new noun tabs, using "an ____" and "leis an ____."

After that, I got out the time pogs that Will gave me and we practiced, practiced, practiced just saying times. When the mythology group arrived, we looped them into that for a few minutes.


We took a quick second look at PI 9 at the forms of the days of the week that we learned before ("on Sunday," etc), then I had you look ahead to PI 44 to the basic forms of the nouns. Just like it says in PI 44, these forms are used in different contexts than the previous forms, and we'll be seeing some of each coming up.

We looked at the answers for page 2 of "Some present habitual tense practice."

We gave a couple quick listens to the audio file for a TEG exercise "Micheál ag caint" -- part of your homework is to translate the statements on the half-sheet I gave you so that next week we can go through the audio again and you'll be better prepared to figure out which ones are true and which ones are false.


Previous Class (October 1) {Back to Top}(back to top)


Tonight's warmup took up the entire time until the folks from the mythology class returned! So I don't know that it was technically a warmup, but that's how it was intended. I have a slew of new noun tabs taken from some of your worksheets and we practiced the mutation patterns for "ar an ______" and "an ________" on some of them.

Here are the sheets the nouns came from, if you want to prep for the next time these tabs come out:

We also talked a bit about signs to help you guess whether a noun is masculine or feminine.


With about twenty minutes left in class, we went over the "Telling time -- the basics" sheet (from ages ago, for most of you -- remember to let me know if you need a copy). Then we worked through the first page of the worksheet "Some present habitual tense practice" from last time. If you didn't get a chance to do the whole sheet, you've got a reprieve.
