In my classroom, I use Brag Tags to spark student motivation. My students LOVE them! I have purchased these Brag Tags from Imagestuff.com, but I've seen posts by creative (and patient) teachers who have made their own. I have Brag Tags for everything from academic recognition to reading to Spirit Days to attendance to birthdays! The best part is, my students NEVER know when they are coming. They have no idea what I have in my collection, so they are always trying their hardest to behave appropriately, be respectful of others, and helpful to their peers. I LOVE IT!! Imagestuff has so many designs to choose from - some of mine are stock pieces and others I've completely customized! You can read my original post about Brag Tags & my Student of the Week recognition HERE, or my post about Brag Tags and Clip Chart management HERE.
Something else I use along with my Brag Tags to spark student motivation in my classroom is my Game Show Style Behavior Incentive MYSTERY DOORS!
