I’m guessing your building principal isn’t going to approve any plans to add a full functioning fireplace to your classroom. I don’t blame them. But we can still set the mood with a nice, relaxing, crackling fireplace in your room.
If you have a projector in your classroom, project these on full screen, and you’ve just set an awesome mood in your classroom as you read a story, as kids work quietly on homework, or just to create a warming scene.
