Classroom Spring Cleaning

Will you soon be starting to clear out your classroom for the summer?  Spring is the season for cleaning and simplifying. As you cleaning and pack up your classroom for the summer, consider simplifying for next year when you set up your room. 
Professional organizers encourage anyone doing a big clean-up to ask themselves a few critical questions as they sort through their stuff.  There are many variations on the questions, but these four can be used as a guide:

1.  Do I use it often?
2.  Do I love it and the energy it gives me?
3.  How easily could I replace it?
4.  What is the worst thing that will happen if I don't have this?
