I taught kindergarten for 16 years and was a district k-1 strategist for 2. I have a masters degree in curriculum and instruction from Dallas Baptist and a doctorate in early childhood studies with a minor in curriculum and instruction from the University of North Texas. I am currently working for Dallas ISD as a prek instructional specialist.
At the start of every school year I debate over what type of name tags to use because I feel like they are always such a hassle. Stickers come off too easy and kids play with them and peel them off when they shouldn't and yarn name tags are even worse because the yarn gets all tangled up, kids pull the cut out off the yarn, and they constantly twist and play with the yarn. So... I was super excited to find Fran's latest post on the Art of Making Name Tags!! For more information on how to make these name tags and for Fran's free download click here. I went to Walmart today and bought everything I needed to make them!! Thanks Fran for the tip.
