Free Classroom Name Tags

I know I can’t be alone in this… But I loved getting my classroom ready for a new school year. 😍 Setting up my classroom and picking out my decorations for the year were always so much fun! But it can get expensive, which is why I wanted to create a set of cute, editable FREE nametags for you! 🌈

This image shows different bright colored classroom name tags in the colors pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.

Why Should You Use Classroom Name Tags?

At the beginning of the year, a classroom name tag serves the purpose of getting a student familiar with spaces created for them (such as their desk or cubby), and it also helps you learn students’ names. I could always see my students’ anxiety begin to fade when they saw their name on a desk – they knew they had a special place in the room! It also made creating seating charts, checking attendance, and being organized for a substitute teacher much easier.

Name plates can also make information easily accessible to students. For primary students, you might want a name plate with the alphabet, and a number line for reference.

For upper elementary students, a cursive alphabet can be useful.

Having this information right at the top of a student’s desk makes it simple and convenient. 

Ways to Use Classroom Name Plates

I mentioned some of the ways you can design a nameplate, but a student desk isn’t the only helpful location. Depending on how you have set up your classroom, you could use a name tag for:

✅ Student desks

✅ Cubbies

✅ Supply Tubs

✅ Pencil Boxes

✅ Student mailboxes

✅ Magazine organizers

✅ And even your classroom door!

By labeling these areas of the classroom, students can easily find the materials they need and stay organized.
