    Can I jump in on this too please

      Thanks, Cameron for your comment. 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 deliver a solution that works well. In the interim, we have published a collection of desk plates that can be modified (school fonts and lines) through our Studio function. These are available here now: Just follow the instructions on the individual resource for best results. In addition, we are currently exploring customisation solutions 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 exactly when it will be accessible.

    Please bring back the QLD pre-curvsive option in the alphabet.

    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???

      Hi there Cory, thank you for your message. We're currently exploring the issue you mentioned with the Dirt, Grass and Sky Desk Plate. Keep an eye on your emails as you will receive a notification should we be able to resolve the issue and update the resource. Have a great day!

    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 :)

      Hey Kerry, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. Customers opinions and suggestions are incredibly important to us and we will definitely keep this in mind for the next design. If there is anything you would like to be put into action, please make a request on our requests page. This will quicken the time ideas can be made as the more votes that are collected, the more attention the request will get. Thanks again for sharing your appreciation for this desk plate.

    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?

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