Teachers prepare new works each week and introduce them to the class. Cubby cleaning is now a very popular work that gives students practice in following a process, learning to organize and reporting home to their folks so they know what warm clothes might be missing from the school cubby.
First, students take everything out of their cubby, then sweep out all the sand and rocks, and lastly put everything back in. This way, students can be responsible for their own space. It’s also great practice for hanging/taking down coats and backpacks independently! There are also sheets with images of cubby items that can be checked off and taken home.
