Would be great if these weren’t labelled or colour coded to use as a sorting activity

Rach C · Dec 29th, 2018

Hi Rachelle,
A great workaround to achieve this would be to find a theme you like in name tags here:

https://www.teachstarter.com/resource-type/classroom-organisation/nametags/

Then in the Teach Starter Studio add the list of words from the post description above. This will create cards with each of the words which you can then use as a sorting activity.

If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

I would love this resource converted into a desk mat so the students can have one on their desk while they work.

Alison Kelly · Sep 17th, 2018

Hi Alison, thanks for your suggestion.

Please feel free to suggest it via the Request a Resource section: https://www.teachstarter.com/request-a-resource/

Your request will be voted on by the community. Each week, our team creates the most popular request. If your request hits the top of the list, we’ll be happy to make it for you!

Would be a good game to play if the children had to classify them themselves- so not labelled as high or low. Otherwise it’s great and I’m using it today

Hi Nicci
Thanks for the great suggestion, I’ll look into creating a different version of this resource that children can sort. As you can understand, we get a number of requests to create new resources, so I can’t guarantee when I’ll have it updated for you.

We’ll soon be offering a way for Teacher and Ultimate Plan members to submit their requests and have them voted on by the Teach Starter community. Each month we will complete the most popular requests.

Please let me know if you have any further questions, I’m more than happy to help.

Kind regards,
Shanelle
