  1. Thank you so much for this post! I was so overwhelmed and both of you made me feel smarter about getting ready for end of the year pack up. I loved listening to your pack -up ideas. I have a question what is your input in allowing students to help you pack up your classroom? They always seem to want to help but what is the proper age group to let them carry such burden with the teacher? Thank you for your help!
