Tutor's Challenge :
I provide examples with pictures and lots of models. We discuss the
picture then I have the student finish sentences I've started. For
example, I say : "Mark went out to shovel the sidewalk. Meanwhile, ___." .
This doesn't take much time. For those words like "meanwhile" that are
trickily abstract, I will keep practicing & reviewing it. We then discuss
what that means or draw a picture of what it means.
