Password Cards a Mess?

My students' password cards were a hot mess! They were never where they were supposed to be  and looked... well...like a frightful eyesore.  Here's what I did to put some class into my class passwords.

My students' password cards were a hot mess! They were never where they were supposed to be (I think they took a journey to the Land of the Lost!) and looked... well...like a frightful eyesore.  Here's what I did to put some class into my class passwords.

I happened to have some paint color cards from Better Homes and Gardens. I had collected these from K-Mart and Wal-Mart. I had plenty of colors for each student to have a different one.

I used name tag labels to cover up the back of the paint cards. Name tag labels are slightly bigger than address labels.


I then typed in the various website passwords on a label template in a word document. Of course, you don't have to type anything, I have also written passwords. But if you have a lot of websites and passwords that are similar, typing may save you some time.

Here's the fantastic thing about these specific paint cards- they come with a hole ready to punch out at one end! Perfect for hanging in the classroom! No more expeditions to the Land of the Lost...I have a handy dandy hanger for the cards right next to the computers. My students sign-in to the computers or websites and then hang their cards right back on the hook. Perfection!

  4. I already keep rings of passwords for each student because they have to many. This is such a great and quick timesaver idea!

  5. This idea will be perfect for our computer lab username & password cards. Our poor kindergarten students have really long usernames and passwords (usernames are 9 characters long....thats a lot for a 5 year old!)
