Just a little thing that I love about hardware stores and teaching. I place my desks in groups and I am constantly straightening desks. Face it...2nd graders are wiggle worms! Well, one day on a trip to Lowes with my family & I saw a bin of Zip ties and BINGO. I grabbed a pack and brought them to school and zip tied all of those desks together. No more straightening for me:) The desks move as one!
This year I was so excited to find brightly colored ties from my local Dollar Store. They fit right into my classroom decor! Just remember to snip the ties at the end of the year so that your custodians can move your desks around to clean:)
