Classroom management can be tricky, so I began using swag tags in my class. They are a fun way I motivate my students to be the very best person they can be.
I tie these motivators into my clip chart so the kids can earn their way to the top of our super kid chart. Adding this component to my behavior plan has made ‘being good’ a cool thing to do!
I store my tags in a divider box and use Post-It Flags to divide the tags up by topic. I also put them in ABC order so they are easy to find. (I put everything in ABC order to help organize my messy self!)
Before I give out a tag, I put the child’s name on it with a Sharpie marker. I also put a bead in between every couple of tags so people can admire the accomplishments of the mighty rock stars. I love the ball chains I got too. Here are the ones I bought.
I used small Command Hooks to hang the tags up. That way, the kids have a place to store them at the end of the day, or when they don’t want to wear them.
Some kids like to leave them hanging and just stop to look at them once in awhile. Others, wear them for awhile, then take them off for lunch, P.E., etc. It’s interesting to watch!
