I AM NEVER EVER EVER EVER GOING WITH A COOL COLOR THEME FOR MY ROOM AGAIN!!! I am in week 3 of coming into to a 62"ish" classroom!!!! It does not heat up till 10. OH MY GOSH. I resorted to turning on my kiln last week just to warm up the room. I'm a large man..and am not cold natured...so if I'm cold...these poor kiddos!!?!!?!?!? Our district keeps saying they are going to be out to fix it...but right now 1/3 of our school is " chillin' ". NOT COOL! Well..you know what I mean?!?!
Good thing you have a kiln! They do make your room nice and warm :). I have used mine as a space heater too! lolReplyDelete
Sweaters. Lots and lots of sweaters. And active art projects to warm up the room with lots of energy. You southern ears need to learn to cope! Hahaha!ReplyDelete
Phyl..remember..I am from the north! My worst winter was -74(windchill). However...62 is not a great learning temp for little kids. Just like 124 degrees is a great temp for the bus ride home when it is about 20/30 min.(that was a few years ago in Aug) Hoping it gets fixed soon.ReplyDelete
Just teasing, Mr. E! I personally have a sensitive internal 'thermostat' and can't stand when it is too cold or too hot. 62 is definitely too cold and I'd be having a fit if it were me.ReplyDelete
Call one of the local news stations and have them come out with a thermometer to show their viewers how cold it is in your room. I bet the school district would have a HVAC repairman there within 24 hours!
Hope they fix it soon!!! I had something similar happen in January once at my old school. I used my kiln too!!! I was lucky enough to have my superintendent pop in and see my kiddos in coats and it was fixed in less than 12 hours. Just an idea:)ReplyDelete
When we first moved to Cornwall in the early 80s I remember the teacher starting the school day with exercises to warm the children up while the stove in the classroom got up to temperature, it was fun and did help get them fit. No idea what the temperature was but it was nowhere near as cold as my schools in Tyneside were in the deep mid winter back in the 60s.ReplyDelete
