Eeeeek! Squeal! Scream!
I have never looked forward to a season change more than this one.
This has been a very l-o-n-g winter and I am ready for some fresh air, brighter colors, warmer temps and one of my favorite annual rituals...SPRING CLEANING!
And while my house could certainly use a little seasonal TLC, I’m talking about spring cleaning in the classroom. Who’s with me?
Remember how gorgeous and new everything was on that first day of school oh-so-many months ago? Most likely, that is not the case anymore. But, we still have a solid chunk of the school year left including that chaotic end-of-the-year months where schedules get super crazy busy. Spring cleaning and sprucing up the classroom will provide many benefits.
- It’ll get you more organized for the super, crazy busy months ahead.
- It will help you prepare for packing up your room at the end of the year.
- It will rejuvenate you.
- It will escort out all those germs that have been circulating all winter.
- It will allow you to make the most out of these precious final weeks/months with your class.
To make this simple, I’ve compiled a list of daily tasks and tips to get your classroom spring-cleaned in a snap. By spending about 20-30 minutes a day for a little over a week you’ll have your room looking and feeling refreshed and much more organized.
I’ve generated a list of simple tasks specific to spring cleaning the classroom and will be sharing them with you each day. You can jump in at any time. You can do one a day or you can double or triple up. You could even tackle them all at one time if you are feeling ambitious.
We start tomorrow.
In the meantime...gather the following:
trash bags (the more the merrier)
cleaning spray (vinegar and water are a great non-toxic option for school)
rags or microfiber clothes
a container of baby wipes
