    It is important for the classroom to be neat and tidy because if the classroom is not clean, it is not comfortable to study and I don’t want our classroom to be like James’s house. Also, it is good for the classroom to be organized because when we come in, we don’t just clean tables, chairs and things like that.
    I think that we all need one job to clean the classroom, like cleaning the stationeries, recycle the papers and clean the tables.
    Even if the maids are cleaning our classrooms, we still need to clean more than them because I don’t want the maids to get exhausted by just cleaning loads of rubbish that we were supposed to clean.
    We can:

    1. Clean when we come to the classroom.
    2.Don’t litter on the floor.

      Hi Jin… you have made some important points in your comment. I like the way you said “if the classroom is not clean, it is not comfortable to study.”

    Classrooms should be neet and tidy because if it is not tidy the teacher will keep reminding you to tidy up. It will waist time meaning time and mean less learning.

    We all need to agree on tidying up propaly.

    We could all have a job to do for exaple what nine and Anirudh is doing. Maybe I could make neet piles and someone else might do something else.

      I like the idea of everybody agreeing to tidy up properly. What should the essential agreement say so that we all agree and remember to do it?

    It’s important to for are classrooms to be clean and tidy and organized so that people and teachers would like to come in. We will feel nice while working to.

    We could come finish tidieing every afternoon.

    We sould make 2 people clean 1 thing.

      It is important that you (and I) feel nice when working, much more important than making other people feel like visiting us!

    I think that it is really important to keep our classroom tidy, organize and clean because so that our classroom can look neat. Also we need it cleaned so that when we do work we can find things that we need when we do the work, like pencil paper markers etc. Maybe we need to agree that there should be a little group 2-3 people (It should be people who want to do it) who cleans the messyy section. But if it is your things that are messy then you have to clean it up. You have to clean it by yourself because it is not other people’s responsibility to clean your mess up. Maybe we should stack the books more neatly and check that your tray is neat. If you have extra time then you can check if your table is clean and organize it if you are the table leader you should tell your table to organize their things more neatly if they leave things on your table which makes it messy.

      You’re right, it is so important that we can find the things we need – quickly and easily so that we don’t waste valuable time wandering around looking for things.

      I like your ideas for things people can do if they have some spare time… maybe that could be part of the essential agreements?

    It’s important to organized the classroom because so we won’t trip over things when it’s on the floor. We need to agree to put away things nicely. Also I agree with Pin because it’s true and important that we have to make our classroom tidy, clean and organized.

      If we put things away nicely, how does that help us to work?

    I think it is important to keep our class clean because
    we can organize our self and many people will like our room
    then we can study from good air.

    We have to tidy our baskets and not
    littering in the class room and tidy
    our computers.

    I think that it is important to keep the classroom tidy because it will be like james house if we don’t keep it clean.Nobody will want to come in and sit or touch anything in the class. I think that a way of making the class to all agree is to make a rule for them to follow if they don’t follow or agree than we vote for everyone to agree,I think than voting is a very fair and good choice because in many school and many places also do like this.

    I think that it is important for calss rooms to be tidy i because if it is neat and tidy it should be easier to work and when other teachers come in they might say it is like a university. if we all agree that the calss has to be organized then we need to sign a piece of pasper. We all need to agree to keep the stationary
    basket clean and put the staionary in the right box. We also need to agree to keep our baskets clean. I think we should have as ystem that if a person dosent help clean they get a tick.

    I think it is important to clean our room

    every body will like it then we can study
    in the fresh air.

    we have to tidy our besket and not littering in the class room and
    tidy our computer.

    I have an idiea for our class we can make a

      I agree with you Sae Yeon because I think we should have our own job to tidy the class and everyone needs to do thier job a keep them tidy.

    It is important for our classroom to stay tidy and organized because we can only feel like learning sucessfully in a clean environment.
    If no-one can find the equiptment we need for learningwe can’t be educated.
    I think that I think we needto agree on us all cleaning up during clean up time and help others clean up their stuff when we do this we have to let the people whoms bleongings we clean up know that we did it and where we have put their things.
    Some ideas I have to keep our classroom tidy is to put up our chairs every afternoon and clear out our basket every month or so. I liked Jins idea of everyone having a job.

    Tidying the classroom is important because if we the keep classroom clean then it will get messy and you can’t find the books and papers you want.

    i think maybe we could all have a job and each of us can take turns to have a job in the classroom.

    we need to make our class room neat and tidy or else we are not going to have fun learning in a dirt messy class.

    we could do things like

    clean the cusions(put them away)
    the stationary place
    the book shelf
    homework books
    and other things in the class room.

    I think it is important to keep our classroom organise because if we keep it clean we can find things easily and if it looks clean we can stay happy. I think if we take care of our classroom it won’t be messy like James’ house, so we don’t have to pretend this isn’t happening to us. We should keep our classroom stay clean like year 6. I think the markers in our class is quite messy and all the new markers is mixing with the old markers.

    It is really important for classrooms to be neat tidy and organized. We need a tidy, neat and organized classroom so you can study and learn in it. When Mr.Sam syas tidy up, I think that we should put eveything on our table in our personal trays unless further notice. Clean everything else when its clean up time, cushions, paper, staitionary, trays, tables, bookshelf, etc..

    Maybe the essential agreements could be;
    Clean up table after use
    Tidy up classroom at the end of everyday
    Make everything else tidy
    Clean your trays oftenly…

    Classrooms should be neat and organized because when we do an activity we would be avle to find things eaily. Also anoher reason is say if the dictionaries are in the vook sheld it wil take you a long time to find a dictiomary and it’ll be just a waste of time. We all know that we don’t want to be our classroom to be disgusting and we obviously don’t want it to be like ‘James House.’ If our classroom isn’t clean i would feel very uncomfortable to learn in here.
    I think that we should all agree to put things in the correct place so things won’t ge lost. We could also make another ‘essential agreement’ so our classroom could be nice and clean.
    My ideas are to keep the room clean the way we want it to, don’t litter on the floor and keep things organzed so we don’t lose things.

    It is important that we keep the class room neat tidy and organize because it is the place that we learn and spend most of our wakeing hours in also a place the move forward in life. We need to make agreements on things like e.g. the books the laptops and the staionary. Mr sam should give us a period and we should splet up in to groups and make agreements to make this class room and class more organized.

    I think keep classroom’s neat is very important,because if classroom is very messy we can’t find we need book,homework sheet, and we can’t feel good to study.

    Having an organized classroom is super important. I have a child with ADHD and she does much better in an environment that is organized and clean! Luckily for me, I have her to help teach me how to have a better classroom for my students. I actually did some research and came across AAA Business Interiors and they have a lot of great resources!!! I definitely recommend everyone to check them out! http://www.aaabusinessinteriors.com/Educational
