Fine students for messy desks! My students earn tickets for a variety of things in the classroom, but they also lose tickets. One of the ways they lose tickets is to have a messy desk. At the beginning of the year we go over expectations for clean desks and that surprise desk checks will be done periodically. I have listed the most common "offenses" and assigned them a fine amount. This is editable so it could be easily adapted to fit your classroom and student needs.
Desks have been much cleaner since the Clean Desk Police have come to town!
