My fourth grade class this year is having a lot of trouble packing up/cleaning up at the end of the day. The procedures I have used for 19 years are not working, and I need some fresh ideas! This is what I am currently doing. Dismissal is at 3:30. At 3:15, I tell the class to start plugging in chromebooks and cleaning up their area. I stand near the door and call out names of students to come see me to pack up. They turn in a daily folder every day, so I call them from the folders in the basket. They get their folder and papers to go home, then go into the hallway to get backpack/coat, etc., and come back in the room to finish cleaning up their area. After I call all the folders, I call, "Anyone I did not call!" and they come over. Every other year, students were packed up and cleaned up by 3:25 and we had time to play games. I introduced the games this year (Heads Up 7 Up, Eraser Head game, and Never Have I Ever) and they really seemed to like the games, but the motivation is not enough to get them to focus on packing up and cleaning up. They move around the room and talk loudly and play around. I have to stop calling names and get them quiet multiple times, which slows everything down. I also have over half the class that does not clean up, so we have to wait while I tell them which desk areas are not ready. I mean multiple papers, pencils, trash on the floor, whiteboards on the floor, chromebooks not plugged in. We don't have buses, so there is no reason for them to rush. They are fine with slowly cleaning up. I won't dismiss them until the room is ready, and lately its been after 3:30. I don't like this, and I don't like the scolding I have been doing at the end of the day. I've tried packing them up earlier and while they did finish by 3:30, the problems of my having to constantly chivy them to clean up and stop talking loudly remained. They do get a brain break about 2:20 every day when we do a Go Noodle, but that doesn't seem to have any impact on their end of day behavior. They also get two recesses every day. Ideas???
