Are there enormous piles of stuff in your room? Are your things scattered everywhere? Is your closet clutter putting a strain on the door? Then it's time to take action!      First, realize that this will take time and work. Look at each thing. Ask yourself, "Do I use this? Will I ever use this?" This information will help you decide what to get rid of and what to keep. Take the things you are getting rid of. Put them in large trash bags. Are they in good shape? Give them away to a charity. If not, throw them out.

Next, take the things you are keeping. Put them into groups. Put each group together in one place. Put all the books on a shelf or table. Hang the clothes in the closet or put them in drawers. Do you have a collectionof objects, such as rocks, postcards, or stamps? Display them together on a shelf,table, or wall.      Now vacuum and dust your room. Congratulations! You have a shiny, clean, and well-organized room.

compound words
  • A long word like earthquake seems hard at first, but when I look more closely, I see that earthquake is a compound word. That means it is made up of two shorter words, earth and quake. I know earth and I think quake means “shake,” so it’s easy to figure out that an earthquake is a movement of the ground.
