Sports Name Plates – Equipment Cards for Students to Color:
What is an Equipment Card? Equipment Cards are cards students use to check out playground equipment from the classroom. I have a basket set up for students to place their card in when taking a ball to play with outside. When students return from recess, they take the ball to their seat. One of my classroom jobs is Equipment Engineer. The Equipment Engineer then reads the student’s name and trades the card back for the ball. This has helped a lot with the returning of equipment – very rarely do balls get left on the playground. If a student does not have the ball, then I take the Equipment Card for the remainder of the month or until the ball is returned (usually by another classroom). This does not mean students can’t play with the equipment – it only means they cannot check it out. Students can also “lose” their equipment card for not following equipment rules – like bouncing the ball in line after the bell or tossing it in the hallway. Students get only ONE Equipment Cards from me for the entire year. This helps them become responsible.
How to Use:
Choose which page you want to print – primary or intermediate name line. Print a class set with a few extras for students who want to start over. Remember there are 2 name plates on each page.
Older students could write their own names and the teacher could write names for younger students.
I suggest having students color with color pencils.
Then laminate if using for Equipment Cards or just using packing tape to attach to their desk if using for a name plate.
