Name Tag Question

Clip to ScrapBook #1

What kind of name tags do you use on desks? Do you get the ones for just their names or the fancy ones with all of the helpful tools (like alphabet, number line, etc.)?

I'm new to first (moving from 2nd). I have always just had their names on their desks but am not sure if Firsties need the extra help.

What do you think?
TIA

get the ones with at least a number line/alphabet. Some firsties, esp those with spec needs have difficulties reading number lines at a distance. Provide as many resources as you can!

I use the ones with the alphabet and a numberline to 20. The odd and even numbers are in different colors.

I have struggled with the same thing this year. They are expensive, but they are worth it. You can also download free ones from Teacherspayteachers.com.

I think the ones with all the little "tools" on them are awesome! Definitely, I think they need to have an alphabet (to see the correct formation of letters) and a number line (for addition, subtraction, and number sense). I also personally like to have a 100s chart on them. You should be able to find fairly cheap ones (I think I bought a pack of 36 for $7 or so) at Teacher Direct or your local teacher store.

Really Good Stuff has lots of different ones to choose from. They also have the choice of traditional or modern print (we use D'Nealian in our district so modern is a necessity).

They also have them in a choice of 12" or 18".

This year I'm trying the 2 sided 18" tags that the kids color the tools themselves.

I like it simple numberline WITH A ZERO...(It annoys me when they start with 1...) Alphabet and maybe colors.

I downloaded the free owl ones from The Land of Aha-Z and then figured out how to put a text box over the number line to put a zero. I am using polka dots and owls and they are really cute. Printed them on tag put on desks with packing tape...lasted the whole year! 9Used them last year too!)

She also has space theme and pirates!

I use the ones from the Target $1 section for the first week of school. It never fails that I have a misspelled name, the parents want him to be called Mikey instead of Michael. I then save these for the computer and put their special log-in codes on them.
Then I use the ones I purchase from the teacher's store that has the number line, alphabet, left-right hands, etc.

I use the ones with helpers. I found 7.00 ones at A.C. Moore and am hoping they have them again. I can't afford the expensive Really Good Stuff ones even though they last all year.

I prefer to only have their name on their desk plates. I cut sentence strips in half, write their name and let them decorate. I then laminate them.

I finally bit the bullet a few years ago and ordered the heavy plastic self adhesive ones from Really Good Stuff and have used them ever since. They have a hundreds chart, number line, alphabet, colors, and right/left. They are quick and easy to apply to desks, remove easily, and are very durable. To me they are worth the investment, as I can avoid replacing them so often. (Torn, lifted, messy nameplates on desk is a pet peeve of mine.)

This will be my first year in first and have tables that fit 3 students... I've wondered what to do about name tags as well...what do I do when I want to move students seat assignments around?? I do plan on getting ones with tools on them.

I use the ones from the dollar store for open house and the first couple days of school. Then I use the ones that have the alphabet, number line, colors, and number grid. I brought the ones from Office Depot last year and had them laminated. Then I write their names. This year I ordered the ones from Really Good Stuff because they last all year.

Desk tags on tables

marshe, I saw that some other teachers who use desk tags on tables velcro them down in the four corners, use paint sticks as a name tag and velcro down (no corner ripping etc.), or buy the plastic adhesive sleeves from RGS and slide the tags out when student spots are moved.

before school starts I have the students write their name on a plain sentence strip and choose their desk. After the first week or so I replace the plain ones with the nicer ones with all the tools. This way I have the student's names spelled correctly and I see before school starts who has correct letter formation and who needs fine motor practice. The kids love choosing their desk since they had tables in kindergarten.

I love the "Desk Top Word Wall" nameplates from Steps to Literacy. I used them last year for the first time. They were such a great reference tool for reading/writing vocab words. They also have shapes, color words, number words, and days of the week. Numbers 1-40 are at the bottom.

I have switched to the fancy nametags in the past couple of years. Last year I had quite a few kids that used the number line all the time. Which meant i didn't have to make one or hang a huge one on the wall. I was surprised how many kids knew their shapes when we did geometry because of seeing them on the nametags all year.
