Desk Top Helpers
Old 08-03-2007, 05:37 PM
 

I use velcro strips that I got at Staples. They come in a long continuous roll. I put the fuzzy side on the back of the desk top name plate. One strip (1 1/2" long) on each side of the name plate. The "loop side" stays on the desk. I have left my loop side on the desk for three years now. It has a very strong adhesive. If I want to remove it, I use needlenose pliers. I take off the velcro strips from the back of student name plates to reuse the next year. The adhesive does not leave a residue. I laminate the desktop helpers first, of course, then write the child's name in black sharpie marker. I can scribble over it with a black white board marker, scrub with a paper towel and it's clean to write a new student's name.The children can lift up their desktop helper to bring it closer to them to use the number line, spell color words, etc. They love being able to do that. It is a snap to move children around, remove name tags for testing, or change names when students move/arrive. It is important that all of the desktop helpers have the strips in the same place.
