Thanks to the awesome Cara from The First Grade Parade, Brag Tags are now a part of my classroom! When I saw her Brag Tags here, I knew I had to have them! Sooo...I emailed my wonderful principal with the link to Cara's blog and she immediately said YES to our whole first grade! Gotta love amazing administrators! : )
We all know how much cuter things look with scrapbook paper!
Each child has a pushpin with his/her tags hanging from it on the bulletin board.
I put them on the board behind my student computers. That board drives me crazy because it is so hard to get to. It always ends up being a board that stays up all year, so I thought the Brag Tags were a perfect thing to hang for the whole year. And...it is far enough out of the kids' reach so they won't get "played" with at inappropriate times. : ) I gave the kids the B.U.G. Award tag for the first tag because we just got done studying insects. 3 of my kiddos also have the Birthday tag since they already had September birthdays. The kids are so excited to find out which tag comes next...there are enough for each child to have one every month this year!
If you are interested in ordering Brag Tags for your classroom, check out imagestuff.com HERE! They are the nicest company to work with and even have REAL people that answer the phone when you call! And you would think they use a supersonic jet plane for the shipping because it is so stinkin fast!
Do you use these Brag Tags in your classroom? Or are you "hooked" and going to order them now?
