How to use Desk Name Plates in the Classroom

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

Easily Prepare This Resource for Your Students

You can download these mixed colour swirls 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 name plates out on thick white durable 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 name 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 utlise the benefits of desk name 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 name plate to this folder.
