Distracted by things in desk

My students play with the things in their desks. I want to turn their desks around so they are not usable as storage, but then how do we handle supplies? Any suggestions?

Each child keeps his/her supplies in the desk of the person behind them. (Last kid in the row would need a bin or something.)

Supplies

I would handle supplies the way I do with my tables. Have a caddie for each table for shared supplies. Hand out books when needed. Have crates to store book bags for reading- they get them at reading time.

My kids have seat pockets that store a few things- would that work? They can’t really play with items because they are behind them oh their chairs.

You could also limit what’s in their desk to just workbooks so they won’t be tempted to play. Any “contraband” gets confiscated and returned at the end of the year.

Good luck!
