2. 4 Steps To Deconstructing Your Classroom In Just ONE Day

I love Angela Watson (the author of this post) because she is so darn practical and organized. She wrote this awesome post on how to clean up and take down your classroom in a few hours (just one school day).

I'm leaving my classroom up and running 100% until the second to last day of school. I'll be using her system. Click here or on the picture to snag her spectacular ideas. I recommend purchasing her product on Teachers Pay Teachers too; I'm so thrilled to be using it this year!
