I have sheets of plexiglas that I use for benchhooks and I have one =
"station" per color. The kids move from station to station - usually =
about 8 colors. At the chalkboard I have a large sheet of rollpaper =
taped to the board with strips of masking tape cut and attached to the =
chalk tray. The kids tape up their print to the roll/ mural paper and =
that gets them out of the way. I have all my classes of the same grade =
level in a row (3 - 5th grades in an afternoon), so I leave everything =
set up all afternoon. I change the chalkboard paper while the kids are =
doing their 1st print. At the end of the printing marathon, I collect =
all brayers in a dishpan and fill with water. Next I collect the =
plastic benchhooks in another large plastic container and fill that with =
water. My kids usually work with the styrofoam printing plates - no =
knives for these guys! The styro plates go in a 3rd bucket with water. =
I roll up the paper that is under the printing stations and by then I =
need to just rinse off the brayers, bench hooks, and printing plates =
under water. Clean bench hooks are stacked with thick paper in between =
which dries them and I hand dry the brayers. I don't have the kids wash =
stuff 'cause our water is freezing cold - no hotwater and with the way =
my room is set up, it just doesn't work because then the kids can't get =
to the sink to wash their own hands. Hope this helps.
