Desk Nameplate FREEBIE Revisited
A while back I wrote a post about not particularly liking things on my kids’ desks. I’m not particularly fond of daily behavior cards, pencil boxes, and “Need Help” cards. I know, I have issues. It’s ok – you can think that. It won’t change anything. But you can think that. 😛
Desk nameplates drive me nuts. I’ve adhered them with all kinds of double-sided tape, used lots of packing tape turned inside-out, ran heavy-duty packing tape completely over the top essentially SEALING it to the desk, and there are ALWAYS those kiddos that have to play and play and play with them until they are gross, not stuck on the desk whatsoever, and curled and peeled into oblivion. Last school year I used reusable mounting putty.
- A checklist for editing writing – perfect for dry erase markers.
- 120 number chart with highlighted odds/evens and counting by 2’s, 5’s (My kiddos use this A LOT)
- Reading decoding skill reminders that match the posters in our room.
- HOW.TO.USE.THE.LINES.WHEN.YOU.WRITE.YOUR.NAME (a pet peeve of mine, can you tell?)
Thanks for the sweetly fabulous comments about the new Number Line and Classroom Labels packs.
So… what’s your feeling about desk nameplates? How do you adhere them?
