This product includes colored templates to use for beginning of the year nametags in 5 different colors. I've also included 3 different ways I use them in my classroom, although there may be many other ideas you come up with.
Copy off on cardstock and laminate for durability.
These nametags can be used to get to know your students at the beginning of the year, for random questioning and higher order thinking questions, differentiation, and for grouping.
I've been using these for several years and they've become indispensable. By using these nametags you're telling your students that they are all expected to participate and understand the material you are teaching by being engaged and focused.
Great beginning of the year activity!
