TIPS FOR ORGANIZING
STUDENTS' DESKS AND MATERIALS

Clipboards Desk Folders
Clips for the Sides of the Desks Name Tags

Clipboards

bullet

Buy a classroom set of clipboards for the students to use. They can then put all of the papers they need in the clipboard and flip through the pages as they work on their assignments.

If a student needs to work on an assignment while outside, either at recess or for a special project, the clipboard will keep his papers from blowing away.

Clips for the Sides of the Desks

bullet

If your desks are metal, you can use magnets with clips. If they aren't metal, you can glue plastic clips onto the desks, but ask first.

The students can use the clips to hold papers they will be needing soon.

Desk Folders

bullet

Use brightly colored folders, the kind that are closed on three sides and open one as desk folders. Use clear packing tape to tape it to each student's desk, then put their nametags on top of that. These folders work really well for daily work done every morning such as Daily Oral Language, or D.O.L.

Name Tags

bullet

Make name tags for the students' desks on your computer. Use a LARGE font and attach it to their desks with that strong, wide, transparent tape. At the end of the grading period you can give a candy bar or some other treat to those who have not picked at or drawn on the tape.
