Clip to ScrapBook #4

I've had kids play constantly with things in their desk before. I've had to tell them if I see them doing it again, I will turn the desk around. I did end up turning the desk around, but only for the student it was a problem with. That student had to stand up and walk to the front of his desk to get supplies when we transitioned subject. It actually did help. Getting up out of his seat to get something from the front of the his desk actually gave him a little break to get some movement and energy out. At the end of the day, though, he hated doing this and promised he wouldn't play in his desk anymore, so we tried the next day with his desk back to normal and it worked great. He did just fine. I think that was all he needed to do the trick.
