Brag Tags in Kindergarten

Brag tags can be an amazingly effective alternative to the classroom treasure box!

When I first started teaching, the treasure box was a staple in everyone's classroom.  Every single teacher had one.  The office secretary had one.  Even our principal had one in her office.  
Kids got to go to the treasure box for everything from good behavior to learning their numbers.  It was supposed to motivate them....and reward them for their effort in the classroom.

The tried and true treasure box was generally effective and kids seemed to enjoy going to the box to pick out their treat/reward/prize.  What they didn't realize is that most of the prizes were little pieces of junk.....usually from McDonalds.....and most likely donated by other parents.  What I didn't realize is that there was a better way to help motivate students without using the treasure box system!!

I've created a set of brag tags that will help students in your classroom celebrate their academic achievements in Kindergarten!  Each tag is approximately 2"x3" and has space at the top for you to punch a hole.  Students will enjoy stringing their brag tags on a necklace, pipe cleaner, ribbon, etc.  I would suggest keeping brag tags in the classroom until the end of the year, that way students can see their achievements add up!!

These tags are available in COLOR  

or BLACK & WHITE (in case you need to save ink!!)

Both sets also include 9 editable designs that you can customize for your own classroom!

Check them out and let me know how you use them in your classroom!!
