So much less finicky than PowerPoint – the fonts you see are what you get in the pdf! Easy to use literacy centers that save you time and can easily be updated when students leave or join your classroom. Great practice for learning names, and for developing those all important fine motor skills.
You will love how easy it is to use! Simply type your student list into the form and generate the worksheets or mats for your students. No need to search and download fonts. Need sheets/mats for more students? Clear the form after you have printed and enter a new set of names.
