Teacher Life Hack

Use tidy tubs to keep floors neat during INB prep.

Arisbeth @ Sailing Into Second had this great idea to keep her floors tidy while her students were putting together their interactive notebook pages. She provides each group with a tidy tub to put their scraps into. At the end of the period, one person from each group dumps the bucket into recycling bin. Love this idea for any grade level!
