Within my upcoming month by month lesson plans, I will discuss ways to prepare for the first day of Kindergarten! One such discussion is adding name plates to the tables for each student.
This file has SIX chevron colored name plates; teal, orange, blue, yellow, green, and red. On each slide there is an un-editable name plate (you write in the name) and a tag to type student names and print to add to your word wall when the time comes!
In my classroom I grouped tables by colors (i.e., blue table, red table, yellow table, etc.). I would write each students' name on their corresponding table color, and their typed name in the same color would go on the word wall for students to easily find their friends using the table color and beginning sound until they learn to read the names.
