Going Nutty!: put tape on student scissors and collect at the begin of year-only pull out when needed Use soap dishes for crayons and keep on shelf. Super post on keeping organized when students don't have desks to store supplies in.
Tip number This shelf has everything they will never need to have. Students signal when the need a supply, similar to signaling for the restroom, so the teacher knows before they get out of their seats.
Desk set-up: none of the desks are side by side, allowing each student have their own personal space but still work collaboratively when appropriate. When desks are side by side, or students share table space, it is much easier for issues to arise.
