    I actually had kids eating the sticky tack last year, so I think I'll forgo that one.

    Yikes! Didn't think of that one! I made mine today (my school starts next week) I laminated and used a vis-a-vis so I could easily change them etc. The vis-a-vis is smudging though ... so I'm not sure if this is a good choice.:(

    I'm going to try the velcro dots. Thanks for the tip.

    I think that for the beginning of the year this time, I will use the word strips I got at Dollar Tree - unlaminated. My classroom / school population is VERY fluid, especially at the beginning of the year. Once my numbers settle down a bit, I will use the expensive ones.

    This is a good idea.

    Try using a Sharpie. It comes off easily with fingernail polish remover.

    I could see this working in higher grade, but not if you put kids in groups or have tables.

    decisions, decisions...

    I am torn between the jumbo tongue depressors hot-glued or velcroed to the desks OR writing their names with Sharpie and putting a cutesy name tag in their cubbies.

    I'm 2nd grade...think they'll care if they have boring Sharpie written directly on their desks?

    What would be pros/cons for hot-gluing tongue depressors to tops of desks? Splinters....?:unsure:
