The Desktop Ease is a useful classroom tool to for both you and your students. It can be used in several ways. Here are some ideas of how I have used them.
1. The easel is called “desk-top” because students use it on top of theirdesks to hold papers. For example, when copying a rough draft to a final draft, the easel holds the rough draft for students to easily see while copying.
2. I have used it at centers to display directions, signs or posters, as you can see on the cover of this pack.
3. I sometimes laminate large, brightly colored mailing envelopes, label and set them on an easel at a center. Students can take assigned handouts from them, or place completed work in them.
Easy to make and easy to use!
