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 :)
