Instant Identification!

It becomes immediately evident when the school year begins that many of my new students don't recognize their name in print. A few can spot the first letter, but that can be a problem if you have more than one child whose name begins with that same letter. (For instance, this year, 8 of my girls have names that begin with an M.)

This is when stamps (cheaper than stickers) or stickers (if you prefer to go that way) help. I make 3 labels with a name, and that way the child can easily spot which coat/backpack hook is his. It also helps with name recognition. The other two labels go on his cubby and his portfolio folder. (More to come on those later.)

(In case you can't tell from the picture, Jacob's stamp is Marvin the Martian.)
