My challenge of the day:
The class asked me my favorite drink in America.
I thought for a moment.. my favorite drink: root beer!
The students had no clue what this drink was.
Since the students already knew what coca-cola was, I said it was like coca-cola; it was a soda and it had bubbles.
Then, they asked me what it tasted like... this was a hard question to answer.
All I could think of at that moment was.. it had an old taste.
Then, just when I thought root beer couldn't get any harder to describe, they asked me to draw it.
How do I draw root beer?
.. Basically, I drew a can with a bulldog on it and of course, "root beer" across it.
The students laughed as I drew the bulldog. They knew it was a dog but they did not know what a bulldog was.
How do I describe a bulldog?.. a dog with a small, smashed face.
Haha, Miss Mary happened to have a picture of a cute bulldog on her phone so then, the students understood.
Miss Mary also tied the mini "root bear" lesson to the roots of a plant. The children just took a test on the parts of the plant so, this was a review.
After school, a few of my classmates and I ate at a restaurant that served traditional Catalonian meat. Since the restaurant highly recommended reservations, we kept the group small. Below is the front of the menu at Mussol.

Overall, good day! I am ready for a quiet, relaxing weekend. I enjoy the children and my days at school seem to fly by!
