Last year I decided to make locker name tags that my students could color. While I decorate my classroom the way I want to (keeping in mind what I think my kids will like, of course), I do want them to have ownership in my classroom. I want them to see their work and little personalities all over my room. So instead of making or purchasing super cute locker tags, I decided to let my kids color their name tags. Now, I did want their names to be LARGE and BOLD, so I made the templates. Could I have had them write their names and everything? Absolutely! But, I did want them to be somewhat cohesive. Translated as: I am a control freak and having different colors on the name tags was me taking a HUGE step, ha!
This may be something that you want to try out in your classroom… if you don’t have lockers maybe you have cubbies, book bags, folders, etc. And, if not… there are a few tips and tricks on this video that might make your life with Power Point a little easier! Either way, I hope you learn something new :)))
