    Will we eventually be able to change the number or desk tags per A4 page? (Like it use to be)

      Hi Sasha, 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.

    Will we be able to edit the length of the number line? 1-30 was great. This process was not as easy as it previously was.

    I loved these desk plates for my class last year as I was able to quickly and easily make them and adjust them for the various needs in my class. How do I choose a number line that is larger than 0-20? Change the lines to be in line with my schools' policy? Include or not include shapes and/or the left and right hands?

      Hi Kelli, As part of a recent website upgrade, we have had to make some changes to the way our custom resources work and this includes limiting some of the features that we can make customisable. You should now be able to select your preferred state font and lines and add your class list. Unfortunately, the other features such as the hands, the alphabet and the number line are fixed and no additional features can be added. We apologise for any inconvenience this change may cause. In addition, we are currently exploring customisation solutions and integrations 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 when it will be accessible. Best wishes for the year ahead!

    This is so much harder to use than it used to be! I can't get the correct lines that my school uses.
