The Clean-Up Routine That Transformed My Art Room

It’s not news that at the end of the year, our routines and expectations begin to fall by the wayside. In fact, I recently had to review my most basic rules, as I noticed a decline in my students’ behavior and level of responsibility in the art room. They were even forgetting things like raising their hands!

If you’re in the same boat, I encourage you to continue to model, reteach and reinforce your routines and expectations through the end of the year. In today’s video, I’ll share the straightforward clean-up routine that has helped keep my kids on track each time they come to art.
