2.) Clear out the Clutter
Even after kids have cleared out and taken their belongings with them, there's likely a host of items stored in your classroom that can still be considered "clutter." Make room for the new items you'll introduce into the room, whether they're to be new activity tables or stackable chairs, by going through storage closets or assessing which books or learning materials have passed their prime. Conducting this housekeeping each summer will ensure that your classroom never becomes too disorganized. This is also a good time to note which student desks and chairs are in poor condition and need to be replaced.
