I issue chore cards with all the chores that need to be completed by each
student written on them. I start chores the last 15 minutes of class. When
someone finishes they hand in their chore card and I check their clean up.
If it's ok, they can leave, if not, THEY stay late. Only the late or messy
kids stay. So far it's working pretty good.
