Immediately after we finished our last SOL test yesterday, we started the breaking down of the classroom and packing up and enjoying freshly sliced watermelon. What a combo?
A former professor posted this article on Facebook last night about Ten Things to Remember as You Pack Up Your Classroom.
I can genuinely say that I've utilized all 10 of these steps. It's also important to get students in on the process. One can harness and teach life skills during this cooperative process. Plus, every teacher should savor their summer break.
Moral of the Story: I find packing up the classroom fun.
