I am not ready because I haven't done everything that I wanted to do on that original to do list! Plus, I visited Pinterest last night and found MORE things that I wanted to do!!
Last week I received a Facebook message from Daniela asking me to review her Kidknows Outdoor Thermometer.
I was excited to do this review because it is my first "official" one, plus it is a SCIENCE tool!
So I received the product and immediately put it up! Installation, if you can even call it that, was simple. You place the suction cups on the outside of a window, but not directly into sunlight.
(As you can see I checked the mailbox late at night! ;))
Then VIOLA, your kid does not need to ask about the temperature and what they need to wear that day! I LOVE this thermometer! During the summer I am a bum and sit around in my pjs all day. Then when my hubby comes home we go out and do something. I always ask what the weather is like and he usually gives me a numerical number. I always ask, short sleeve or long sleeve? Will I be hot in pants?
Obviously I am an adult and have problems with temperature, so imagine how a kid feels! This thermometer right outside their window will give them some independence.
(The temperature showing on my phone at the time of the picture was 80! :))
In the Upper Grades Classroom students are still struggling with reading a thermometer, plus associating the weather with their fashion. In the middle of winter a student showed up in shorts and flip flops, maybe on purpose, but as a teacher this should be addressed!
This thermometer will be going outside my classroom as soon as I am allowed to go back into my room! I hope to teach students how to read a non digital thermometer and also help with their fashion sense!
