One thing that I have l earned from being a teacher is that the temperature of a classroom is something that has a huge impact on the way students learn as well as behave throughout the day.
When students are too cold while in the day, they tend to become more whiney as well as complain about everything.
When the classroom is too warm, they can become too comfortable as well as begin to get lazy as well as occasionally, students will even fall asleep while in lessons. I have found a temperature that keeps the students alert yet comfortable, as well as all it took was a survey of the hot as well as cold temperatures that parents use in their own homes. I asked the students to take new home a small survey for their parent to complete as well as return to me by the end of the week. The questions in the survey were in regard to the average temperature they keep their homes throughout the year. I found that most families keep their new home around 77 degrees. I started using our smart thermostat to keep the classroom at a comfortable 77 degrees throughout the month as well as our students had a great reaction to this, and most of them were happy with the temperature, as well as only a few felt love they needed to bring an extra layer to class. The tired kids were alert as well as I even noticed that they were taking more of an interest in the subject material. Occasionally, all it takes is a little bit of research to see what makes the students happy in the classroom.
