Looking for a fun and practical way to celebrate the First Day of Spring? This Spring Cleaning Checklist is a great way to incorporate math, writing and organizational skills into one necessary evil in the classroom--cleaning students' desks!
It was designed for use in my first grade classroom, but could easily be used in any primary classroom. Students clean out their desks and make note of how many of various school supplies they find, titles of books inside and evaluate the condition of their desks before and after the organizational process.
My first grade kiddos adore cleaning and organizing their desks and love this activity as well. I hope you and your kiddos enjoy it, too!
