The Power of Appreciation: Using Brag Tags for Student Recognition

student recognitionFew things are as pleasing as receiving appreciation—especially when it comes from someone we respect. Appreciation has the power to energize us, rekindle our enthusiasm and restore commitment and confidence.

Whether or not our students would dare to admit it, we know that our appreciation means something to them; the way their faces light up when we recognize them shows it!  

To recognize our students who go beyond the call of duty, we’ve been getting a little help from our friends over at Boost Promotions. We’re particularly fond of their brag tags: these look a bit like military dog tags, but for kids. You can buy one for nearly every kind of appreciation under the sun:

  • Super Attendancestudent recognition
  • Improvement Award
  • Great Work
  • Student of the Week
  • Sharing
  • Kindness
  • Manners
  • Respect
  • Trustworthy
  • School Pride
  • Anti-bullying
  • Courage and lots more

Each tag is $1.00. You can also customize tags for an extra buck.

If you’re looking for another way to show your students that you appreciate them, you might be interested in giving “brag phone calls” a shot. To learn more about them, check out our blog, An Awesome Classroom Management Strategy You’ve Never Heard of.
