A trip to Florida by car is a dream journey! Thanks to the developed network of highways, the state is ideally suited for traveling by car. Anyway, if you decided to travel on a rented car, there are some important moments of car rental you should know for sure.

 

Car rental Companies

There are several car rental agencies in Orlando Airport. And unlike European countries, it is often more advantageous to take the car out of the office in the city, namely at the airport. In any case, it is better to book a car in advance via the Internet. The choice of rental companies in Orlando is quite large: international (Dollar, Thrifty, Hertz, Alamo, Enterprise, Budget, Avis, National, Sixt and NU Car rental), as well as many regional ones. Among the local distributors in Orlando, there are Green Motion, Routes, Payless and Fox rent-a-car.

 

International or local company?

In both cases, there are advantages and disadvantages. Local companies tend to have slightly lower prices, but on such cars, you can travel only inside the region and return it to where you took it. The international company prices are slightly higher, but you can easily take the car in one place and return in another. Well, and if something happened to the car, then you will be given a help much faster, as there is found a more developed network of hire.

 

Price

The cost of car rental in Florida varies in different companies. For example, in Florida, take Kia Ria with automatic transmission and air conditioning for rent for a week will cost you from $25 per day. Please note that it is included in the chosen rate: taxes, insurance, franchise size, mileage, and navigator. Often the cost of 5 days of rent is equal to the cost of 7 days. In addition, companies periodically hold promotions and offer discounts on rentals. So look for promotional codes.

 

What documents are needed?

Documents for renting a car in the US are as follows:

  • passport (foreign);
  • driver's license;
  • bankcard;
  • insurance.

 

Basic insurance, as a rule, includes a franchise, the amount of which can vary from 200 to 2000 dollars. Nevertheless, at any point of rental you will be offered to take full coverage of the franchise. In the event that you have booked a car without full coverage – we advise you to arrange it. This will save you from unnecessary worries in unforeseen situations.

 

Who can take a car?

Requirements for age and driving experience of the client in the US are standard. In some companies of car rental in Orlando, the hire is possible from the age of 18, others – only from 21 years, in the third – for drivers under 25 years there is a special young driver fee.

 

Offers for young drivers

Hertz offers for young drivers aged 21-24 an additional car fee of $15 for a car of economy class. For other cars (crossovers, intermediate, standard, except exclusive) – $25. Drivers from 18-21 years old must pay $41 extra per day of rent.

 

In Alamo, Dollar and National car rental companies there are so-called "golden packages for young drivers" – but on the websites of the rental offices about this there is not a word – they are available only through the dispatchers.

 

Advice! Before taking a car at any car rental, it is necessary to inspect the chosen car carefully, ask for additional equipment or other important questions, read every line in the lease contract. It is better to download GPS navigator into your phone or simple Google Maps and think of the rout beforehand!

My Mouth is a Volcano
My Mouth Is a Volcano Activity and Idea Book - Julia Cook,Carrie Hartman

"All of Louis thoughts are very important to him. In fact, his thoughts are so important to him that when he has something to say, his words begin to wiggle, and then they do the jiggle, then his tongue pushes all of his important words up against his teeth and he erupts, or interrupts others. His mouth is a volcano!" This book can be used in the classroom to introduce classroom rules, expectations and routines. It can lead to a discussion on what should be appropriate to ask the teacher and what the student should ask a peer. The book is a great engaging materials that allow students to learn how to follow procedures.

My Mouth Is a Volcano Activity and Idea Book - Julia Cook,Carrie Hartman

 

Brief Review:

My mouth is a volcano is about a young boy who has issues with his mouth being a volcano and saying what was on his mind. When it was his turn to present things about himself as a star student, he was interrupted by his classmates and was upset about being interrupted. His mom explained to him that, that’s how everyone felt when he did that himself.

Idea of how it can be used in a classroom:

My mouth is a volcano could be used to explain when good times to talk are and when it is not okay to talk. The teacher could have the students write about a time where their own mouth was a volcano and how did they fix the problem with their mouths being a volcano.

Reading Level & Leveling System:

Book Rating:

I would rate this book a 5 because it shows what the young boy was doing and how it was irritating the other students. And when it happened to him he didn’t like what the other students were doing it, And realized the other students feel the same way when he does it and learns a strategy of how to fix his volcano.

Where The Wild Things Are
Where The Wild Things Are - Maurice Sendak

When Max gets into trouble and his mom sends him to bed without his supper, he sails off into another world where the wild things live. He spends some time with them and when he gets homesick he returns home to his room. After returning home, he sees that his supper is waiting on him...and it's still hot! 

This is a great adventure book to read to younger children. After reading this book, the teacher could have the students create their own Wild Things. They could also write and draw where they would like to take an adventure to if they were given a chance.

Amazing Grace
Amazing Grace - Mary Hoffman,Caroline Binch

Amazing Grace is a story of a young girl named Grace. Grace is a very adventurous little girl that loves all kinds of stories. She would read them, have them read to her, and even act out ones in her own head. When her class is told they will be acting out Peter Pan, she gets very excited and is more than prepared to try out for the role of Peter Pan. She gets the part and does an amazing job! 

This book could be used in the classroom as a great confidence booster. The students could break into groups and act out a story for the class. They could also come up with books that they have read before that would make for great plays and write about how it work out.
