Sometimes you come across something "new to you" in education that just gets you all giddy! This has happened to me with Brag Tags. I cannot wait to implement this system this year in my Kindergarten Class! I just know that my kindergarten kids are going to LOVE Brag Tags!
What in the heck are Brag Tags?
Brag Tags are a reward system set up in your classroom.....without the need for an expensive treasure box! Kids work to earn a variety of Brag Tags. They will want to earn them all, so behavior and motivation improves. When students meet a goal, such as learning to write their name, doing homework, or even having great lunchroom behavior, the kids earn a Brag Tag. Teachers can set up their own system for wearing the Brag Tag necklaces, but I plan to let my kids wear them on Fridays and any day that they earn a new Brag Tag. The set of Brag Tags that I created is designed especially for Kindergarten Kids, so I know that my students will want them all!
To get started, you just need a set of Brag Tags and something to attach them to, such as the cheap-o ball and chain necklaces off of amazon. Some people laminate the Brag Tags, but I plan to just print them on card stock. I am pumped and ready to get started with my new little kinders!
Want to give your kids something to brag about, too? Give them Brag Tags!
Have a wonderful summer!
