Use baskets as drawers in their desks. Students put their pencil pouch and any loose tools in there to keep their desk nice and tidy. I purchased these from Wal Mart in black for $1.97 each!

Visual Rules (Strips for Student Desks)

Start the year off with clear classroom rules and expectations! Visual rule strips provide students with a non-invasive behavioral support.


I've always had my student desks in groups of 4 or 5. I really love this arrangement because we do a lot of small group and partner work and this lends itself well to that. Having fewer students this year allows me to keep an extra desk in the middle of each group for storage. I bought some clearance fabric in a cute pattern to dress it up a bit!
