Name Plates from Picture Frames

Hi everyone. Can you believe how quickly the last few weeks have gone? This is my last week of school and I am wondering how it is all going to get done. Somehow it all pulls together in the end.

Anyway, as I was clearing some items out of my cabinet, I came across some old 2.5'' x 3.25'' acrylic bent photo frames and thought that I would share what I found them handy for in the past.
At my school we are not permitted to adhere anything to the student desks. That was a bit problematic for the displaying of name plates. Some teachers use hand crafted wooden slotted holders. But, I found that the acrylic photo frames were just about the right size. They can be purchased for about fifty cents at Walmart. If you sit your students in teams you could double up the names one on the front and one on the back.

I hope that you find this helpful. Let me know if you have any other ideas for displaying names on student desks. Thanks :)

I've always laminated the students name tags and attached them to clothespins that way the tags can be clipped to numerous things in the room. When they are at their seat I have them clip their nametag to their basket :)

I used to tape them down, but I was spending way too much time scraping off tape at the end of the year. These days I laminate them and simply place them at the top of each desk. I've done this for about 4 years now and I haven't have any problems. It is understood that the nametag is a tool and not a toy and it is not to be played with. If a student chooses to break that code and damages it, they lose it. I guess that seems a bit harsh, but this is the first year where I have taken any away.
