Michelle and others who practice "closure":
I feel I've got the beginning of classes down to a good working
proceedure, similiar to the one you describe. Now I need to work on ending
classes. So far, winding up classes with some reflection or summation has
eluded me. It seems that clean-up, with only one sink for 30 kids, won't
allow for it. I stop a full 15 minutes ahead of the bell for clean up to
start and it takes all that time. It's frustrating. Any ideas? Thanks,
