Educators are an inventive lot. They have to be. Keeping control of a classroom is no easy feat either, as anyone knows who has ever spent a day sitting behind an instructor’s desk. When a method works in the classroom, teachers spread the word to one another. Such is the case with—of all things—floor tape, at least when it’s durable. Just listen to teachers rave about it:
I teach preschoolers who move around constantly. So if there is tape on the rug they know exactly where they should be. When it’s time to line up, again there is no question where their little feet go!!
Ohh, I love floor tape too! I use it to show kidlings WHERE line-up starts (I have an oddly shaped classroom and we can’t line up at the door!) I also use for on-the-floor math games!
Both of these comments were posted on the popular education blog Your Teacher’s Aide.[i] For those unfamiliar with floor tape, it is simply tape that is specially designed and manufactured to be placed on a floor.
Teachers often use painter’s tape or vinyl tape in their classrooms, as shown in the photo above. One problem with flimsy tapes like these is that children pick at them, damaging the tape.
Educators are expert in teaching our children. They are understandably not floor tape buffs. We can help.
Tape is our bailiwick. Our flagship floor tape is Superior Mark™, a 32-mil-thick PVC tape featured on the reality TV program School Pride, which renovated a different school each episode. The U.S.-patented tape comes with a self-adhesive backing. We also make a version with a hook & loop backing for carpeted rooms.
Our floor tape is the most durable on the market. Used frequently to mark floor lines in warehouses, it withstands forklifts dragging heavy pallets over it. School kids will not damage it. The tape comes in a wide spectrum of colors and can also be customized with words and graphics. We would be happy to send you a free sample so that you can try it in your classroom.
