The Hurricane Irma Edition

I got a little behind in my blogging as we prepared to be hit by Hurricane Irma here in central Florida. It was a big storm but we were so blessed to have minimal damage to our home - and to never lose our power! Cleanup is underway. All schools in the state were closed Friday and Monday, and my district is closed on Tuesday also. Many of our buildings were used as shelters, and now all must be inspected before we know they are safe for our return. I fully expect to be back in the classroom on Wednesday.

So what do you do when you have three days off - unexpectedly? I tried to get a bit ahead with lesson plans and gathering resources. I tweaked my plans to push lessons three days ahead and am not worrying about the timeline! We do not have to make up these three days as our superintendent says we still will have our instructional time in. (Hope we don't get hit again, 'cause we might end up with makeup days if that happened.)

In science, we are still working on our force and motion unit and we have some great object lessons about wind force. After we finish up with magnets this week we will be doing some activities that explore the force of the wind - very timely.

If you are a Florida or Texas teacher I know you can relate to this. And, I still plan to blog about our work with magnets either at the end of this week or beginning of next.

Take care, and stay safe!
