    My 4th graders used to have the same problem. A few years ago I began a once a week session for desk and binder cleaning. We use a 10 minute period before or after a special, right before lunch, usually a 10 minute block where nothing else really fits anyway. I just announce the time, and the kids get to work. Sometimes I'll check a few random desks or binders and ones that pass my inspection get candy or a small treat. My students actually request this time (even without the candy!) because it helps them to get organized. It has really cut down on lost papers. I highly recommend it.
