Overview: Student name tags are a great resource to have on student desks for a number of reasons. First and foremost, they help you, the teacher, as well as students, to learn each other's names. Name tags also help school personnel and substitute teachers to identify students when in your classroom. Lastly, the right student name tag can also facilitate learning by providing a resource of commonly used (but not yet mastered) concepts. The following printable name tags do just that. There are two designs to choose from based on grade level.
