The weather has turned drastically colder again this week, but the fifth graders are reluctant to put hats and gloves on again now that we've had a few warmer days. This student came in from recess with red, numb ears and asked if I could make her some ear muffs to warm them up. Whipping out Kleenex and a roll of masking tape, I fashioned this set for her while the rest of the class looked on and giggled. Emily was so pleased with her ear muffs that she wore them the rest of the afternoon, even after her ears warmed up! Oh, we do have fun in 5th grade!
