How to Help Students Organize Their Desks

If you have desks it would be very helpful to provide a chart that outlines how you expect them to look. You may want to create desk size charts that can slip right inside for some of your messier friends.

Another option is to label inside the desk to spell it out even more.

A clean desk is a happy desk. :)
