How to spring clean your classroom
Welcome the new season
Let’s begin our Spring Unit by sweeping away any last bits of winter and preparing our home for the coming season.
We like to start each section of the year with a simple, symbolic change to our home. I’m not saying we all have to deep clean our whole house – although if that calls to you, go for it! But I do think that a little spring cleaning sets the tone that we are moving into a different phase of our year.
So today, let’s mark the opening of our season with a little tidy up.
Here are some things that you could choose from to open the season:
:: open the windows and let the breeze come in. Can you smell spring in the air?
:: gather up any remaining winter decorations and put them away for the end of the year
:: tidy your bedrooms!
:: swap your bedlinen – perhaps for fresh, line-dried linens
:: if your weather has changed, swap your clothing around. Put away gloves and woolly hats and bring out lighter coats and locate your sandals
:: put your winter books away
:: clear and dust your fireplace and hearth, or your nature table, ready for new spring treasures
:: sweep your porch and add a pot of spring flowers
Away with winter! Welcome the spring! And as a reward for your hard work, how about making a batch of yummy rhubarb muffins, which you can eat as you survey your clean, spring-ready home.
