Something that really annoys me is finding random items on the floor of our classroom. Anything from crayons to puzzle pieces to manipulatives--I find it on the ground! The younger the grade you teach the more true I think this is. Many times my students will come up to me, in the middle of an important lesson usually, and show me something they found. In the past I would take the item or have that child put it away in the correct place. As silly as this may sound it actually takes away precious teaching time. So I made a simple lost & found basket from Dollar Tree. Now anytime someone finds something it goes in the basket. Then during free choice time or centers, I will allow a student to have the job of putting all the lost and found items back where they belong.
