Using Desk Name Plates in the Classroom

Desk name plates are the perfect tool for indicating where each student sits in your classroom and providing students with handy visuals they can reference during their learning.

Early-year students will benefit from seeing their names written using the correct school font and appropriate handwriting lines.

Whether you have a brand new class or want to re-theme your room, editable desk name plates are the perfect resource to match your classroom theme.

Customisable Butterflies and Lady Bugs Themed Desk Name Plates for the Classroom

This cute butterflies and lady bugs themed desk name plate is the perfect addition to your classroom. Any animal-themed classroom will make your kids smile joyfully as they enter the classroom. We know in the early years classroom that students learn all about living and nonliving things. So any animal-themed classroom is the perfect match!

In addition to looking fabulous, these desk plates are fully customisable, allowing teachers to make personalised decisions about what features to include for their little learners.

The editable options on these customisable desk plates include:

  • the name of the student
  • the letters of the alphabet (in both upper and lower case)
  • number lines (choose between 10, 20 and 30)
  • left and right hands.

You can also choose your state’s school font and font lines to help your students become familiar with correct letter formations.

Easily Prepare this Desk Name Plate for Your Students

You can download the butterflies and lady bugs themed desk name plates as is and write your students' names; however, if you are looking to save time - hit the ‘customise’ button!

We’d recommend printing your students’ desk plates out on thick durable white card. Once you’ve printed them, it’s time to adhere them to your students’ desks. Our hot tip is to use velcro dots or velcro strips - this means that you can remove the desk plate when the desk is getting cleaned!

If you have students in your class that are tempted to fold the corners of their desk name plates. Another way to utilise the benefits of desk plates without the hassle of tattered corners is to have a ‘desk folder’ for your students. This could be where they keep all of their work for the week that they need to get out at the start of each day - adhere their desk plate to this folder.

    Thank you for these, they look great and will go with our theme for the beginning of the year. Only one thing, do you have them with the NSW dotted thirds ie, dotted line then two straight lines, then another dotted? I'm sure you know what I mean. Which line to put the letters on is one of the tricky things to learn and these may be confusing. Thanks
