Cards for Primary Grades
As a first grade teacher I had to come up with a way for my children to hold the card the right way. Often they were covering part of the bar code with their fingers (the one with 2 per page). So I put stickers on the four corners and call them their finger spots. This way they know where their fingers should be and don't cover any of the bar code for easy scanning. It would be great if these could be printed on the card though so they are more durable.

I have tried to make a child friendly set for my year one class (5/6 year olds)
If you have Adobe Acrobat Pro, its not hard to "add" your sticker to the corners. Click "Tools" on the right side, and choose "Content Editing ---> Add Image". Add Image opens a dialog box where you can search for your "sticker". You can do this 4 separate times or you can copy/paste.
If you only have the free Reader version, you can still do it, it just takes an additional step: Under Edit, there is a "take a snapshot" tool. Take a snapshot of the Plicker in Acrobat, paste it into PowerPoint (Or Keynote or Google's Present). I recommend PowerPoint because its easier to work with graphics than Word or Google Docs or Pages. Once you have your Plicker in the editing tool, go to Insert Picture. The sub-menu here will vary based on your version of PowerPoint and platform. I use a Mac, so mine offers separate options for Photo and Picture from File. Again, choose your picture, resize as needed, put in the corners. Repeat via copy/paste or repeating the steps.
And you have your stickers on your pages. You can change your stickers for the seasons or units, etc.
That is a great suggestion. I teach first grade also and that has been part of the struggle with their little hands and uncoordinated fingers. Please add this suggested as an option.

I colored the A section red, the B section blue, C section yellow, and D section green for my 1st grade kiddos!
