I hope everyone wasn't too affected by Hurricane Florence. Before leaving on Wednesday, all of us had to prepare our classrooms in the event that the storm wreaked havoc. That entailed unplugging everything, putting a trash bag over my desktop, moving things away from the windows, and moving the Chromebook carts to a tutor room for safekeeping. I am glad that the severity wasn't as bad as it potentially could have been but it is always better to be safe than sorry.
Today we switched classes like we normally did but I used the bulk of the literacy time in order for the students to work on a writing prompt. I decided to have everyone do it because it is a very good opportunity to practice writing.
