I was very disappointed with these. When they come in the package they are neat and wrapped so that you can easily untangle the group but when you try to pull them apart individually to give them to a child they get so tangled. I gave up! Never even got to use them because I was so frustrated after 2 colors. Waste of money!

Love This Easy To Use Differentiated Instruction Tool!
This is so handy for groupings -- by color, by shape, by numbers. No Preparation - can be used over and over again. Kids LOVE seeing what group they are being placed in. You can also preplan groups by setting up groups ahead of time! Excellent Time & Labor Saver!

I have a teammate who bought these for managing her groups. They are excellent for that. No more kids switching out of groups to be with their friends;however, the strings are problematic. They are constantly tangling up with only the slightest movement.

I am using this tags to send children to the restroom or even doing math activities but it will be better to have bigger size!

Great idea but poor construction. The strings tangle all the time so the necklaces cannot be hung together. Strings also bother students necks when wearing them. They could be strung with shoelace and that would be better.

Good Idea, but Bad Product
I was really excited about trying these out this year. My students tend to swap groups to be with their friends. This way they could be grouped according to three possible combinations.
I used these tags and after the first day, they got horribly tangled, and the numbers and shapes began to scratch off.
I might have to take them off the strings, but I'm not sure what to do about fact that the shapes seem to rub off after the first day.
