Hello All,
I would like to create a "pretend" drivers license for my students. If anyone has a drivers license or ID template please post it for me.
Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi!
I didn't know how you wanted to use it, so I looked up your state and found you are in Texas, so I googled Texas' drivers' licenses and made up this MS Word page for you. There are two on a page.

If you know how to work with text boxes and tables you should be able to change the text to whatever you want the words to be. Hope it works for you!

Sorry to be nosey. How are you going to use your lisences? I have heard of teachers doing this as a part of their classroom management. Is that how you are using yours?

I am so jealous!! I need to try to make a Missouri one now!

You can use them as cursive licenses when your kids have mastered cursive and can use it in their writing.

writers license

I always have my kids earn their "writers License" so I was trying to change this into that. Is it possible to change the picture in the background without losing the rest? This is a really neat template and I would like to use it for this. Thanks

Use license with a behavior bulletin
Old 07-02-2008, 07:54 AM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #12

Next year, I will be working with student with extreme behaviors. All boys. The behavior system we use has 5 levels. I created a behavior bulletin board similiar to a race track. The students will attach their license to the race cars as they move around the track to the different levels.

I am from Missouri and as I posted above
http://www.acme.com/licensemaker/ is what I use, its license plates though, not licenses. I have a race car theme in my classroom. I used this site to make a Missouri License Plate for each of my students. On my door it says "Licensed to Learn" and I have a license plate with each child's name. Here is an example of one:

Thanks TeacherKel for the license plate creator. That's really cute! I'm still hoping to find out how Risa made the license though. I need that clip art.

Here's the Missouri License
Old 07-02-2008, 08:55 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #18

I'm supposed to be getting my things ready for a vacation, but I just haven't been able to resist ProTeacher!

(Now, boys and girls, can we say "ADDICTED"???
Do we know anyone who IS 'addicted' to ProTeacher? Hmmmm??? )

Here's what I did:
I made the text boxes and tables first. Once I approximated the colors and lines, I went for the background image.
  1. I got the background image from Google Images- state capitol or the state building. (That's also where I looked to find out what the Driver's licenses look like for each state.)
  2. Once I got that, I saved the image to my computer.
  3. Next, when working on MS Word, go to "Insert...Picture"
  4. Double click on the picture to open up "Format Picture"
  5. Click on the "Layout" tab. Click on "In front of text" so I can move it around on the page.
  6. Then, click on the "Size" tab and make it larger. (Or drag it larger from the 'handles' (little squares around the border).
  7. Next, click on "Picture" and play with the 'brightness' and 'contrast' usually increasing the slider to slightly higher percentages.
  8. (Anytime I don't like what I see, I immediately hit CTRL+Z to 'Undo' whatever I just did.)
  9. (This is where I'm not sure what I do because I just fiddle with it 'till it works ...) When I'm ready, I slide the picture over the text and then I think I used the drawing toolbar and... I either use the 'Draw' pop-up menu to ORDER the picture with 'send to back' or 'send backward' -OR- I click on the text box and format the picture to go 'behind the text'. I truly don't know how I do it. As I said, I just click through it by trial and error... Sorry I can't be more precise, but I learned this stuff all on my own fiddling through it all. Oh! And using the CTRL+Z (Undo) as my best friend!
Anyway, here's the Missouri License-2 per page.

P.S. Note to CageyBee: Are you sure you're not my Mom? I feel like you're my own personal cheerleader! Guess I'll have to put a check in the mail!

Risa, I love the Texas driver's license. It's like you read my mind (you knew exactly what I needed.)
Thanks again!

For me, this site is all about sharing back and forth.

There have been others that have, at one time or another, provided me with exactly what I've been trying to find, too! So I guess this is my way of 'paying it forward'.

I'm so happy that you'll be able to use my little creation! It was a complete guess regarding what it should include and how it might be used, so I'm glad I guessed right!

I'm glad I ran into this post! I wanted to make a drivers license for my class. I think I will use it as a "Licence to Multiply." I'll keep track of the multiplication facts on the back. So, I've spent the past hour (using your instructions Risa) making the California driver's license. It's the best that I could do. I hope someone can use it to suit their needs!

Thanks for the ideas and inspiration! It's only one per page.

Oh! After posting this, I realized that I might take the yellow background off and just print it on yellow stock card so that I don't use so much ink!
