Show and Share Time: I Want to See Your Desk!

Calling all teachers: public, private,and homeschoolers:

Fess up- I want to see your desk!

That's right, if you've got a blog, I invite you to show and share a picture of your desk, linking back to this post. Leave me a comment to let me know that you've blogged about your desk and I'll compile a list of classroom hoppers (in a single blog post) to share this weekend. We can "visit" each other's classrooms and take a sneaky peek by clicking on the links!

Now, without further ado (drumroll please), I give you...my desk:


Why yes, that is my favorite desktop organizer (purchased from Michael's craft store) keeping company with some laminated stars, my ever-trusty Diet Coke and sticky note pad. But wait! What is that white, seemingly dead thing sharing space with our kindergarten Nextel phone and my sunglasses?

Why it's a confiscated white rubber rat, of course! See that tail? It s-t--r---e----t-----c------h-------e--------s out to almost two feet long, which is how a colleague first noticed it during recess. One of my Super Stars brought it for Show and Share, but thought he'd keep it safe inside his shorts pocket. Safe, that is, until the tail just became *too tempting*.





Once confiscated, Mr. Rat spent the rest of the day right there, in front of the desk organizer, next to the laminated stars.

Until Show and Share that is...


Now it's *your* turn! Snap a photo, share it on your blog, link back to this post, and leave me a comment letting me know you're participating in Show and Share.

    I don't have a picture of a desk to share, but I do have a student desk organization idea. E's teacher had the students bring a cardboard tray (the kind that bottled water, Gatorade, etc come on). Now the students just have to pull out the tray to see what is in the desk. They seem to fit perfectly.
