Must Haves Monday Link Up

I am joining the link up at Blog Hoppin' for Must Haves Monday.

I thought I'd show you a few items I used last year that are now on my MUST HAVE list.

The students use name tags the first couple days of school and are required to wear name tags on some of our field trips.

I love these plastic name tags and lanyards from Lakeshore®.

I like to make my own name tags to put in the plastic holders. I type the names and add graphics. The lanyards are ideal, because they have velcro in the back, so children can easily take them off and on without having to put them over their heads. 

They're also fun to use in the classroom for special group activities.

I also found a solution for moving name plates on desks. Periodically students change desks. I wanted a simple and {quick} way to move the name plates from one desk to another.

I use name plate vinyl sleeves.
This is a picture of a name plate vinyl sleeve from Really Good Stuff. The sleeve sticks to the desk. The name plates can easily be changed. 

These are the actual name plates I use:

The students have larger reference tools they use, but I like that these are a quick reference.
