The last time I dragged tables around my room in order climb up and hang student art projects from the ceiling, I remembered the pictures of the old tenement buildings with clotheslines suspended across the alley ways. The old timers reeled in their laundry. I realized I could do the same with a piece of yarn tied in a loop. This time I stood on one table and reeled the yarn in attached a paper and pulled it along. When I had all of my students' papers hung, I tightened and tied it up to hooks in the ceiling. The line goes across my classroom and I only have to climb up on one table. Should save the district on Workman's Comp.
