no name plates

Someone on proteacher last year made me have the lightbulb moment that I didn't need name plates at all (I have desks). I never even thought of it b/c every teacher in my school and all schools I've every visited use them.

I ended up buying those sturdy kind from Really Good Stuff, writing the kid's names on them, and not taking off the sticky paper. They just kept them in their desks and got them out when they needed them. LOVE IT! Now my desks are always clean- so much easier to wipe down, and the table groups feel more like tables.

If I had tables, I would store laminated number grids, alphabet strips, and laminated name plates in the center in their tubs. When I was going to teach K last year, that was my plan anyways.
