Today was my last day with students. I am CRAZY tired, but I really wanted to quickly write about a fun activity that I do every year to get my desks cleans. It is a student favorite and very effective on that last day!
My kids blow sloap bubbles on their desks!
You will need a few ingredients:
- a dish tub or other small plastic container
- dish soap (Dawn works best.)
- a plastic cup
- dish rags (I ask my students to bring them from home.)
After lots of time to experiment, students use their dish rags to scrub their desks and chairs. I encourage my kids to really use their muscles!
I often use a Clorox wipe when they are done just to be sure that germs are killed, but the soap does a great job of cleaning the dirt, dust and pencil marks!
Clean desks and happy kids! Win! Win!
