Yesterday was my last day with my students and boy were they full of energy. Every year we use shaving cream to get the desks clean and have a little fun. First we put down shaving cream, then we wipe it clean with a paper towel and last use a clorox wipe to get the film off.
It gets a little crazy and messy, but if you can handle the messy part- definitely worth it. Students that are in fifth grade were asking their teachers if they can do it too.
I really wish I were one of those people who could delegate jobs to have the students help out more. I think some OCD kicks in and I want things a certain way... UGH! I hope I get better with this. What kind of things do you do with your students to have the help with end of the year cleaning?
