In Hurricane Sandy's Wake...

Well, yesterday was an interesting day.  Hurricane Sandy certainly made herself known in RI.  While we didn't get hit as bad as other areas, she left quite a trail of destruction in her wake:

I took this picture of Narragansett Beach last year:

And this is what it looked like yesterday:

I was extremely lucky to not have any damage or even lose power.  My thoughts go out to those who were affected by this powerful storm.

School was cancelled yesterday and today.  Since I didn't lose power, I got hard to work on some of my TpT products that I had started over the past few weeks.  Normally I am only working on one project at a time, but I've had so many ideas lately (and not a lot of time), that I keep starting new ones and not finishing them!

I don't normally use worksheets in my classroom, but I have some students who are really struggling with their vowel sounds.  I am going to be sending these home for homework with certain kiddos.

There are over 30 practice sheets!


And thank you so much to those of you who linked up with us at Motivational Monday!!  You can still add your link and we will be back with another one next week!


  1. I'm in RI too! I'm a teacher in WW. We were lucky and did not have any damage in my town of Coventry. Power flickered and that was the worst of it! Hope you're safe where you are!

  2. I'm glad you are ok Sara!! We still don't have power but we have a generator so I'm just grateful for that and the fact we didn't get any damage.

  3. I'm so glad that you, your family and your home are all ok. Holy cannolies, those pictures ran a shiver up my back. I live in WI, far far away from ocean storms. We have tornadoes, but I can't imagine the duration of a hurricane. Thanks for sharing! OH, and your product looks fab!

  6. Oh my!! What a picture. I'm so glad you're safe!! Just realizing now that you're in RI - my very very special friend just moved there and is teaching in Mass. Maybe you'll run into her!

  7. I'm in OH and our power was out yesterday from 3AM to 7:40 AM. And we got snow yesterday! Getting snow today, a snow/rain mix tomorrow and then rain for the next few days. Right now it's raining outside. That has got to be scary with what people on the East Coast went through. NYC is pretty much decimated due to Hurricane Sandy. Stay safe out there!

  8. I'm glad you made it through the storms safely! Yikes! I'm glad you got a day off from it!!
