These name plates are in Publisher format and can be edited to type in the students names (I downloaded a Harry Potter font to type their names with). If you do not have Publisher please print the PDF version and write in the students names instead. There is numbers in the top corner to represent the assigned students classroom number. I print these on card stock and laminate them. I've placed magnets on the back and hung them from their desk or placed them on their desk with contact paper.
