    Anyone have any suggestions on the best way to make name tags stick to tables for a kindergarten classroom. We have tried Velcro and tape, but didn't care for either one. Thinking about trying my hot glue gun - anyone have any other suggestions?

    Last year my teammate didn't put names on the table. Instead she put the names in a pocket chart on the wall that students could get if they needed it. This worked out well for her.

    The contact paper sticks well and cleans up easily. When the littles start picking at it, you can slice off the dirty part to make it last a bit longer.

    You can also write their names with a large sharpie on their desk and it will eraser with an expo marker.

    Clear packing tape or contact paper.
