Y'all inspired me with all your remixing and retros. No reason to not have some fun in the next couple of weeks, even during a retro!

If you use it, what did you like about it and what needs work? I would adore some feedback 🎃

    @Amanda Awesome! It took me back to lovely Octobers in Boston years ago. 🍂

    My only suggestion, based on my limited experience with students who don't always react to questions that are super open, would be that you can add a specific subject suggestion 🏹 to the campfire♨️ section as well. Also, not sure if you meant "savior" or "savor" 😊.

    I totally plan to use this now for a pre-Christmas class feedback session, and will use that last segment to also ask my students to reflect on what kinds of things are best done when we are together - synchronously - and what works best as asynchronous work.

    Thanks for sharing! Somehow I am so in the mood for some hot apple cider🥃 (in an environmentally friendly container - love your details!) now...🎃

    @Christina such good suggestions. For a pre-Christmas class feedback session, you could modify the pumpkin carving to another activity 🎃. Maybe it could be decorating cookies or gingerbread houses? And the maze could get shifted to going to a Christmas lights walk.

    Def savor though on certain days hot apple cider around a bonfire is my savior. Keen eyes!

    Oooh no, @Amanda, those are awesome ideas for the next one, but I am way too invested in this one now for that! Check out what a visit to Rawpixel (yes, it's an addiction) and an "autumn" search led to:

    Awww that looks so good! If you unlock the icons you can re-color them. Also, you can play with the transparency so you can "see more" of your background image. You could also have some zoom back grounds so the students can get in the mood!

    You sound like a person that understands how much I enjoy playing around with these guys! Honestly, it is so relaxing. Thanks again for the perfectly seasoned template!

    Always! Feel free to customize and re-imagine away, including in the discussions. I wonder for the students, may adding some specific questions in different colored stickies might be an option. Have fun!🎊

    Thanks Amanda, I just tried your suggestions and re-edited to embed above - hope I did it right this time :-).
