Product Description
Do you have a group of students who really struggle with organization this year? Do your students lose their papers frequently, forget to bring home papers, or take a long time to get their materials out of their desks because their desks are a mess? Do you go into your students' desks to find a paper for them after school only to find 6 extra reading books, notebooks, or empty food wrappers? If so it may be time to teach the kids exactly what a neat desk looks like and how to achieve a clean, organized desk! This booklet gives clear directions for how to clean desks (tossing everything onto the floor is not one of those steps) and it even provides a photo of what a neat desk looks like.

To use: The way I use these booklets in my class is to check 1 group of students at the end of each day. I place one of these booklets on the desk of each student who needs to clean their desk. When they come in the next morning, while everyone else does their Morning Work and then joins us for Morning Meeting, those students have to clean their desk. I have only 4 booklets printed so that a maximum of 4 students will be cleaning their desk on a given morning.
