Last year, the dirt grass sky was part of the lines of the students’ names. Now, it’s a patch of white. Can you bring back last year’s version???

My only suggestion would be for the numerals on the number line at the bottom to be a bit of a larger font as they are quite small. I know this is tricky depending on the size of the number line. I love this resource 🙂

Fantastic resource for setting up at the beginning of the year. I love how you can edit to suit font, writing lines etc and add names.

Hi when I downloaded it with the shapes the circle was labelled square. How can I fix this

Hi Sarah, thank you for letting us know. This should now be fixed 🙂

Agree with above request – can the alphabet at the top of the desk plate show sky, grass, dirt too?

Lyn Rodda

Was wondering if this could be adjusted to show the sky, grass and dirt in the top alphabet part as well as the name?

Scott (Teach Starter)

Thank you for the suggestion Lyn. We will look to add this in the new year.
