Keeping your own desk clean can be a major task, so it can definitely be a pain to try to keep your students’ desks clean. Luckily, following a few tips can help make it easier for everyone.
1. Provide Convenient Storage
Students shouldn’t be keeping everything in their desks. Invest in storage cabinets or cubbies to hold some school supplies such as scissors, crayons, pencils, paper, glue, markers, dry erase boards, manipulatives ect. Bookcases can provide students with a handy place to keep their books, which you can label so that you can keep track of which book belongs to which student. This can help students feel less overwhelmed by the clutter in their desks.
