Howling winds


Have school


Storm delayed


Children focused?


Spring coming?

    YIkes! Why does this always happen?? We start testing next week. I know, already, there will be: A major snowstorm, a flu epidemic, a sewer line break in front of the classroom. It’s a given. I love the way that you used short lines and questions.

  2. We had lots of hype about the last snow storm we were supposed to get. All the schools were closed around us but not us. The kids were distracted all day or maybe tired from staying up too late hoping for a day off. Your poem really nailed down those feelings.
