      From blog: Desk Fairy! Attach a star to a pixie stick.. this is the desk fairy's "wand" -- when the students leave the room, you check each desk... the cleanest desk is awarded the pixie stick and this cute little saying: The Queen of Clean visited your class and after searching each desk it was yours that passed. Congratulations on all your hard work. A clean desk is surely a perk. Love, The Queen of Clean -Love this, although what to use besides a pixie stick? My kiddos miss their mouth more than they make it with those things...

    Desk Police tickets~~Free. The student will receive a "Ticket" if his/her desk does not meet clean desk requirements. They will have until the end of the day to clean their desk.

    @Kristi Berry Hedwig the Owl is a little stuffed owl I found at Kirkland's. I want to use him like the "Elf on a Shelf" and move him daily. I would sit him somewhere around the room where my kiddos can see him. If their desks are neat and clean they get a "Desk Owl" reward and treat of some kind. I took a picture of Hedwig and erased the background to insert him into the desk reward cards. You can also use the reward cards for upper grades just minus the moving owl.

    No, this isn’t a bulletin board, but it would make an adorable classroom border/display and a fabulous project for your kiddos to help you with! We found the idea on Pinterest – the photo collage/idea can be credited to Sonja Photography – and just had to post it! All you need is a little time, a digital camera, and some willing kiddos to help you create!
