  3. Lamination Bin – anything you need laminated but don’t have time to do it, stick it in the bin and label when you need it and what classroom. This will be checked weekly!
  4. Playgrounds should be cleaned up after every use before coming in, just like your classrooms should be picked up before you go out.

Clyde’s Corner Tidbit

When adults value and respond to what is good, precious, unique, and exceptional in a child, then the child responds by wanting to be good, precious, cooperative, and caring.
