Bright Ideas for Name Badge Holders

It's that time again for another Bright Ideas Blog Hop.  With school starting next week, I thought I'd share how I use these inexpensive ID Bandge/Name Tag holders in my classroom.  You can find these at office supply stores and at Walmart in the stationary department.  I buy mine at Walamrt 12/$1.88.

Use for student name tags.

Use to label individual student book boxes.  I found these boxes at IKEA 5/$1/49 and added some decorative ribbon to tie the badges to the box.

Use to label center or table baskets
Make a mini student roster and hook to your whistle. 
You will always have a student roster with you in case of an emergency.

I use those same name badges every year. They last me all year for the students name tags! Never thought of using them for learning though... great idea!
