Those who know me well know that I don't do well in cold weather. Some people have anti-freeze running through their veins, and they're never cold. I'm just the opposite. I don't let the air conditioner go on in my car unless it's 95 degrees out. And if it's below 75, I've got a sweatshirt on.
So when we decided on Out of the Deep Freeze for a Secondary Smorgasbord blog hop theme, I bristled. I don't even like ice in my drinks. The title alone was making me shiver. Then I thought about it, and I realized that in my classroom, I AM trying to "warm" things up a little. Last week I had my students complete a fun fun fun activity. They created a "desktop" and blog for a book character.
We had a blast. I've said it before and I'll say it again: kids are so clever and creative! We had blogs called Freak the Mighty Dragon Tales (They liked the double allusion.) and The Katniss Chronicles. A good time was had by all.
Or should I say, a warm and fuzzy time was had by all?
