BRAG TAGS have been an awesome addition to my classroom! I created my first set of these about 2 years ago and saw a drastic change in the behavior of my students. Here’s how they work. BRAG TAGS are given out to students throughout the day for rock star, amazing choices. For example, your students are finishing up an art project and the floor is a DISASTER. You notice that one of your students has taken the initiative to pick up the scraps off of the floor without being asked. At that point, I would give that student a Class Custodian BRAG TAG. Or, let’s say that it’s Daily 5 time and you notice that one of the students that is working on writing is going above and beyond the expectations of the assignment. I would reward that student with a Journaling Genius BRAG TAG. Now, let me say that my students know that if they point out the positive behavior or action, a BRAG TAG will not be given. This is something that I need to notice and recognize. I also give out BRAG TAGS for special days such as birthdays, field trip days, AR Camp Out, etc. I also have a monthly Homework Club BRAG TAG that gets rewarded to those who complete all of their homework for the month. The kids love these things and work their tails off to earn them! Here are some of the FAQ’s that I get:
In the photo below you will see a closer view of how I organize and store these BRAG TAGS. Since taking these photos I have added MANY MORE BRAG TAGS to this product so you will not see them pictured.
