Clean up cards are your solution to a messy and chaotic classroom!
Pass out these cards at the end of the class period, or at the end of the school day, and watch your room clean itself. These cards are great for most classrooms, specifically general elementary classrooms, elementary and middle school art classrooms, and even high school art classrooms.
Students quickly (and competitively) clean their personal area, and then work together on their “classroom job” - first table that is done gets rewarded!
Use as many or as few cards as you like. In my classroom I use one card per table, but I only pass out the relevant cards. Example: We only use the BRUSHES card when we have painted that day. I end up using most of the cards at one point or another.
You can customize each card with specific instructions, and the kit includes two blank cards to personalize to specific classroom tasks.
