End of Day Clean-up

I must admit that sometimes my classroom looks like a tornado has blown through it!  It is a huge mess!  I am a neat person and this really bothers me.

A tip that I found on Pinterest suggested choosing a secret item.  The students clean up the classroom but the one with the secret item gets a prize.  For example, today I chose a student's name tag that was left on the floor.  Once everything was picked up, I said that Jayvon won because he picked up the secret item.  My students now ask to do this clean-up at the end of the day.  I don't feel embarrassed to leave the classroom anymore.
