Getting Your Classroom Floor Cleaned Fast

By the end of the day, I usually have scraps of paper, pencils, markers, etc. all over the floor. A great game I use is called "Secret Scrap". I look around the room and find 2 or 3 items on the floor, I then inform the students to go find the "Secret Scrap". They love it and pick everything off the floor! I stand by the trash can and look at their trash and say "Thank you". They learn not to ask me if they found the "Secret Scrap" because I only say "Thank you" or "Put that where it belongs". After everything is picked up, the students go back to their seats and I let them know who found the "Secret Scrap". You can give candy, stickers, raffle tickets, etc. depending on your reward system.
