    I do not get those name tags with the number lines and days, months on them but last year I had someone make me numberlines that went across the students desks.

    I have no idea how she made them and where she go them from.

    Anyone know of a good site?

    Try the Dollar Tree. They had them (called Desk Tape) a few weeks ago.

    The ones I got from the dollar aisle at Target had a number line on them.

    My teammates use nice desk plates with shapes and colors and abcs and a number line. But I can't stand spending $10 on them. It doesn't seem worth it...

    Well as you all know from my name tag thread I will not spend $10 on those name tags. They just tear.

    I will look for the numberline tape.
    Does it come off the desk easily at the end of the year?

    How far does your number line need to go? I wonder if you couldn't print out the line itself on card stock and have the kids fill in the numbers before you tape it down? It might make it a little more personal for the students, and it's a good way to review what a number line is/how to use it.

    Once again this requires a little more money but I get the nameplates with a number line on them. You mentioned that you won't buy them because they tear. Well, last year I discovered nameplate pockets (I saw them in Really Good Stuff) but they are cheaper at my local teacher store. They are vinyl and usually last through the year, protecting the nameplate for the entire year. They, at least to me, are worth the extra money. That way you can get some really useful nameplates with number lines, 100s charts, ABCs, left and right and they will last. I just tell my kiddos at the beginning of the year, if they rip it or pick at it , they won't get another one. And all of them left them alone last year. :)

    I print out number lines from helpingwithmath.com and slide them in a sheet protector sheet, give them to a student with a dry erase marker and then they can use it as reference all year.

    Perfect. I can print these and blow them up a bit.
