It is interesting that my classroom is always hot but it is hotter in the winter than in the warmer weather. On those below freezing days, we had to open the windows not to suffocate from the oppressive heat. The rest of the day was followed with. "It's freezing" from the kid by the window and "Open the window. It is hot in here." So, we continue through the day opening and closing windows. Some kids are wearing their winter coats, others are down to their polo shirts. I would blame it on the children but they are right on target.
I teach all boys and I keep waiting for one to slug the other over the battle of temperature.
I have to leave this for a future post but I bet you don't know the real difference between boys and girls. I do.
