I create a name plate for every child in our school (over 700 students
at the moment) and laminate it. It has their name, grade level and
homeroom teacher. I have art "angels" (5th grade volunteers who use
their recess time to help out) cut these out. I display every child's
work. We constantly have the walls papered with art, all over the
building. The kids and parents LOVE it, not to mention the principal.
It is a great way to build self-esteem, to see all kids' work up there.
Plus, the messier ones can blend right in if you "hide" them in between
some better works. Plus the kids like seeing their name with their
work. I even let them title their pieces if they want, and we can make
a title tag for them.
Hope this helps!
