The past two years, I gave the students a little basket from the Dollar Tree to store pencils, a marker, a pen, dry erase marker, etc. They were getting worn out looking so I had them take them home in May. Now, I'm wondering if I should buy more baskets again for this, use something else, or just urge them to keep these items within easy reach inside their desk. I like the idea of having these things at their fingertips in a basket, but I also like the look of cleaned off desks. How do you allow the kids to have easy access to these items in your room? Thanks!
