My students sit by tables. Five out of eight tables have extra clean up duty when we do messy projects, like sink 1, 2, 3, floor by sinks, and counters. I have them bring me clean brushes back. Each table has two palettes (approx. 9"x12") with their table number on the back, so I know who didn't clean up if it's left dirty. either they lose points, stay late to clean up, or come back to finish cleaning. This system works pretty well.

> Does anyone have a good clean up plan? My biggest issue is with 6th and 7th grade and the state they leave my sink and paint brushes in. My classroom sink is right outside my classroom, so it is hard to monitor both what is happening outside at the sink and in the room. It never fails, someone (no one will own up to it) leaves a pile of unclean pallettes and ruined paintbrushes in the sink. I have tried limiting the sink to two at a time, but then we get a long line of people waiting and clean up takes forever and there is still a mess. Any thing that has worked for others?
