Hi....I teach middle school in CA also but our kids always have their shoes on.
The shoes as collateral is a trick I learned about 7 yrs. ago but the
"trick" is to learn when to use it so it becomes diff., unusual and the
"user" remembers!
I use it for only very important stuff like calculators or something
personal of mine that's valuable. Everything else in my room (like pencils,
x-actos, erasers, scissors, sharpeners, etc.) are located on the supply
table (by my desk) in drilled out blocks of wood or plastic containers with
just enough room for a class supply. When I scan the table at the end of
each class, everything MUST be there or no one leaves. Now.......the
"trick" of this method was......training ME to check it before each ending
bell! I'm TRAINED well now so it all works super for us. I can't remember
having anything stolen or lost in a really long time in my classroom but it
took lots of training (kids and me) to get there!
