Describe My Holiday

It’s not my habit to write about my personal life on this blog. However, this is an exception. This year we decided to spend our holiday on Bozcaada (Tenedos), which was on our “places to see” list for more than a decade. Our friends who had been there told us that there was not much to do on this beautiful island except for its clean sea, wonderful and peaceful coasts, delicious fish restaurants, delicately decorated street cafes, wineries and delicious wines.

We only had a few days for a holiday this year so we set off for a dream destination. Kids were excited… On our way, we passed motorways, narrow roads, little villages, lakes, beautiful sunflower fields, a strait and olive trees.

I spent 5 magical days and enjoyed every minute of being there. At the time of departure, we left a part of our hearts there. We didn’t say ‘goodbye’.

Well, a teacher is a teacher everywhere and a blogger teacher wants to share what she has experienced, learned so I thought about a first week lesson.

    Dear Eva,
    These are great ideas. I love the way you linked them with your holiday:) I think this might be a great starter / warmer at the beginning of the term and it’s adaptable to all age groups.
    They can also create their own ones.
    Thank you <3
