We learned that commons that are well cared for are healthy commons. Commons that are not taken care of, we decided were, then, "sick commons." As a class, we cleaned up the centers that were still left messy, or sick, yesterday.
While talking about how to help each other clean up, Emily had an idea: put up pictures of centers when they're healthy. That way we know how to put a center back together when we leave. We're excited to try this new strategy and see if it helps us be more accountable when cleaning up.
How do your children know when something is "all cleaned up" at home?
