Pull-out Drawer for Elementary Student Desk
This sweetie's desk had been consistently stuffed with notebooks, folders, crumpled papers, broken pencils, index cards looking for their friends.....
So, last Friday we introduced a pull-out drawer, made from a leftover box top in the school's copy room. To suit the small opening of her desk, we folded over each side of the box top, stapled it, and covered the very top edges with masking tape. We even took the extra precaution of making sure each staple was fully closed so no sharp edges would potentially scratch her skin as she pulled out the "drawer."
This morning the top of her desk was pretty jumbled, but her pull-out drawer still looked organized.
