I have had lots of positive comments and questions about my Brag Tags this year...and I'm happy to report...they are a success so far!
I have been very pleased with how motivating they are to my students! 5th graders prefer things like tags to other types of rewards, and so far my students have been doing a great job of monitoring their own progress and adding their tags to their chains.
We have noticed that the chains are a little difficulty to open and close, but other than that, we have a winner for positive classroom reinforcement! :)
