- Book List: EPIC Florida
- Math: DISNEY (Disney World is located in Orlando, Florida) I found some great Disney themed Codebreaker worksheets on TeachingSquared. Disney on TeachingSquared
- Science: Kennedy Space Center is located in Florida. We can’t discuss Florida without adding NASA
NASA has been featuring NASA at home. It is the most jam packed website for Stay At Home fun that I have found yet. Learning Space at Home is broke down by grade level and includes videos, activities and more. The site is full of coloring books, science videos, and activities to explore space from your living room. NASA at Home is really worthy of a few days of discovery.
Inspiration is possibly my favorite page on the NASA website.

7. Book Pick: Because of Winn Dixie
I love Kate Dicamillo. You may not know but I grew up in a preacher’s home. I felt a connection with Opal. The story is about the summer Opal and her father, the preacher, move to Naomi, Florida, Opal goes into the Winn-Dixie supermarket-and comes out with a dog. A big, ugly, suffering dog with a sterling sense of humor. A dog she names Winn-Dixie. Winn-Dixie is better at making friends than anyone Opal has ever known, and together they meet the local librarian, Miss Franny Block, who once fought off a bear with a copy of WAR AND PEACE. After you read it you can tell me if you think Miss Franny Block or Miss Sherry Scheline is the better librarian. 🙂
