Pros:OSAGE COUNTY FIRST GRADE GIVES THUMBS UP
The Bottom Line: All in all these are eye catching, child pleasing functional name plates.
NOTE: as with many of the items I review in this category the items are not toys per se, nor are they games, game pieces, game boards or game machines, or other gaming type devices, they are not Software or Office supplies per se, rather, these materials in general are resources designed by educators, produced by an education, school, instruction centered publisher; and are classroom type materials intended for use with Early Childhood, primary and older age Elementary students in both public school or home school setting as well as for use by parents who are working to help their children with learning content areas.
This product is a shrink wrapped package holding 36, tent type name plates. Each 9 5/8" x 6 1/2" name plate folds over to become a 9 5/8" x 3 1/4" tent.
CSS™ Industries, Inc The Paper Magic Group™ INC Eureka™ Tent Stand Up Name Plates, measuring 9.5 x 6.5 inches can be folded to form a double faced tent measuring 9.5 x 3.5.
Bands of yellow border all sides of the name plate, against the yellow will be found upper and lower case letters in black with the numerals squeezed into the bottom right quadrant. Left hand is shown in teal while the right is magenta.
All in all these are eye catching, child pleasing functional name plates.
Over the 3 + decades spent in the classroom I have purchased, and used many name plates to identify work spaces, pinning boards, bulletin board space, cubbies and the like. Handy especially for the first days of the new Osage County First Grade term; this Name Plate features letters of the alphabet, left and right hands and numerals 0 – 9. And, while it can be used as a standing tent; Osage County First Grade uses the plates cut in half, half on the table top and half on the pinning board.
I find Little Learners prize knowing that there is a place in the classroom set aside just for them; plus these manuscript lettered Name Tags are first-rate for children to use as a handwriting model during seat and partner work sessions.
Name Plates fashioned of especially chosen raw materials selected to meet industry and governmental regulations regarding suitability and safety of usage in classrooms and other settings where small children are present feature lignin and acid free usability. Paper is durable, robust, colored with permanent, smudge resistant non toxic inks to withstand many little hand touches during the school term.
I like to laminate many of the paper products used in our Osage County First Grade classroom. Name Plates take well to laminating, and, laminating tends to brighten colors, can be wiped off easily in case of spills and become even sturdier than the card stock not laminated.
I use and have long employed a diversity of large to small, flat and tent type name plates. The plates are an low-cost device, readily accessible in an extensive range of colors, styles and designs whether used as game cards, signs, penmanship guides or whatever it is we choose to use them for in the classroom.
Happy to recommend CSS™ Industries, Inc The Paper Magic Group™ INC Eureka™ Tent Stand Up Name Plates
These name plates are great for helping children and teachers get acquainted during those first days of the new term.
NOTE: I find materials widely available from a diversity of online sites as well as being found on shelves of walk in brick and mortar type shops catering to the classroom teacher and home school use. Price varies by when and where the product is purchased.
