I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!
Ever wonder how I became a teacher in Spain? Interested in moving abroad? If teaching here is something you would be interested in, the application process just opened this past week and will be accepting application through March! It's free to apply and you don't have to even be a teacher OR speak Spanish! My husband and I both got job placements in the same city and are having a wonderful adventure here together! Learn more about it --> here <-- OR please feel free to e-mail me :) Appleslices4th@gmail.com I would love to help you with any questions or concerns you have. Moving abroad can be scary and unnerving, but I am so glad I did it. I wouldn't change it for anything! If this is something you've been considering, I urge you to look into it. What do you have to lose?
Christmas break is officially over. My hubby and I had the best travelling around Europe but it's always nice to get back home and settled in :)
I had a nice surprise when I took the early train an hour out to my school on Tuesday- it was a teacher strike day! The teachers still strike once a month in order to continue trying to find a balance with the government. So instead of heading home since no teachers were at school, I wandered around, sat in parks, explored outside of hundreds of year old churches, and soaked up the sun. It was 70 degrees here and I was enjoying every minute of it!

So since I had a FREE day, I spent it putting away Christmas decorations and organizing the house. I even stopped for some fresh flowers so I could have something once the decorations were all put away. I always feel so sad once I've taken down the pretty holiday decorations! The flowers definitely helped :)
So I spent my first day back to school sharing with my little Spanish students what a New Years Resolution is. They don't have that custom in Spain, so it was new for them! I used The Applicious Teacher's cute little New Year Flip books and we created four resolutions. They loved it and I'm looking forward to getting them up on the wall when I'm back in the classroom on Monday. Not being able to get into the school outside of work hours makes it tough!
I am looking forward to making these adorable little snowmen this week with some of my ESL learners! We will make them and then label them in English or write about them in English, depending on the level. I've seen these little guys all over the blogsphere and Instagram so if you know where the idea originated, please let me know!
Thanks so much for stopping by- have a wonderful weekend!!
