Table Washing (even the bottom)!

One of the favorite activities in the classroom for teachers and students is table washing.  This activity has so many benefits!  It is a multistep activity that allows concentration to develop.  On this day, two of the afternoon children decided to wash off pencil marks from the bottom of the tables.  We helped them flip the table over (after they looked under and found the markings) and they completed everything else.  They were so engrossed in this work!  At one point one of the children looked at me and said, "This is just too much fun!"  Such joy!
It is a gift to have time to complete a work like this and see the results!  After this table was finished, they asked to wash more tables!
