      Hi Katie, We don't have that option at the moment. So we can keep all of our suggestions together, please submit a change suggestion to this resource using the Changes & Updates tab above the comments section. We appreciate any feedback that helps make our resources even better!

      Hi Robin, As part of a recent website upgrade, we have had to make some changes to the way our custom resources work. We apologise for any inconvenience this change may cause and are working hard to create a solution. In the interim, we have begun to include a collection of desk plates that can be customised (school fonts and lines) through our Studio. These three are available now: We will have additional options available later this week. In addition, we are currently exploring customisation solutions and integrations that will enable you to better tailor Teach Starter to your unique teaching needs. Unfortunately, any new customisation functionality won't be available until later in the year. We will let you know the moment we have details on our new solution and when it will be accessible. Best wishes for the year ahead!

    I wish there were more options for this like on the lower primary one. I can't use it because it's not the right font or lines for Queensland. Could you please make a QLD joined cursive one?

  • Julie Carlson

    Do you have a Qld joined cursive handwriting version of this desk plate? If so, how do I find it. I have already tried using the search bar. Thank you.

    There is no edit for state fonts.

    Hi. Is there a chance that the blue and red lines can be removed? Thanks

  • Dorothy Segar

    Hi, is it possible to remove the vowels aeiou as it is misleading. Instead could we have a version with all the parts of speech defined? Thanks Dorothy

    Hi, is it possible to customize the desk plates to add student names? Also, I would appreciate an NT version. Thank you, Lisa

    • Kristian
      ·

      Hi Lisa, There is an NT version available, simply click the arrow next to the Download button and scroll down the drop-down list until you come to NT Pre-cursive. With this desk mat, there is only a spot for the students to write their own names (as it is an upper years resource). If you'd like to add names to the desk plates yourself, I would suggest taking a look at our desk plates collection here: https://www.teachstarter.com/resource-type/classroom-organisation/deskplates/ If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don't hesitate to contact me.

    Would love to be able to add names before printing. Click here to vote for this so Teach Starter will create this. Thanks :) https://www.teachstarter.com/request/change-desk-mats-upper-grades/

      In regard to this particular request, due to the limitations of the customisation suite we currently have, it would be impossible to add a further level of customisation on top of the ability to change fonts. We would love to be able to accommodate you and this request in the future, unfortunately at this stage is it not possible.

    • Stephanie King

      And editable without the lines would also be good please (just a blank box)!

    • Alison Smith

      Hi Rachel, Thanks so much for your request. Have a great day.

      was just about to suggest this!

  • Ruhama Geiger
    ·

    Was a customisable version of this ever created?

  • melissa egan
    ·

    This would be great if it was customisable and we could type the names in!

  • Danielle Marks
    ·

    I love this thank you. Just wondering if there is an editable version of this so we can type the students' names straight in then print? Thanks

    Looks great I think I will use it a front cover of their Maths books instead of desk mat

    I plan on placing a lower grade and upper grade desk mat on the table in my stage 1 class.

    Fabulous! Thanks so much Scott.

    This is fantastic! Thanks. If possible could you please add the QLD cursive font? The only QLD option is beginners and I would prefer to use cursive for the upper grades.

      No problem Nicole! We have just added Queensland Cursive. Feel free to download it now! Kind regards, Scott
