In first grade we work really hard to keep our materials and supplies organized! However, I find that the clean desk fairy is a great motivator to use in the classroom. I only have her visit once a week and all week long my students think about when she might visit. They love using their imaginations about what she looks like and how she gets into the room. I love how their faces light up when they see the note left on their desk.
Feel free to use the letter to introduce students to TCDF. I also have supplied the notes in various formats.
