The Ultimate Classroom Management Tool

What better way to kick off the school year than with an introduction to my favorite behavior management resource EVER. This resource has been transforming behavior around the world! I'd like to introduce you to...

Brag Bracelets

Teachers have reported that students have never sat so straight, listened so intently and worked so hard. But that isn't even what I love most about brag bracelets. The actual thing that I love most is that students get to take them home which creates a positive teacher/parent communication channel. So I bet you're wondering...

How do they work?

Brag bracelets are so versatile that you can incorporate them into virtually any behavior management program. When I used them, I'd have a few up for grabs during a lesson. For example, at the beginning of a lesson, I'd let my students know that I was looking for 3 wonderful listeners to receive the 'I'm a good listener' bracelet and then I'd hand them out accordingly. I also made sure that if I saw a student doing something super special, such as being a kind friend, that they received one. I would attach the bracelets to their wrists using a bit of tape and students could take them home at the end of the day which I found that parents really loved.

I have received so many wonderful ideas from other teachers too who use them in a variety of different ways. Here are their ideas:

  • To introduce these, I used a few and once my student were used to them I added more.
  • I printed them on cardstock to make them more durable.
  • I laminated them and attached sticky velcro dots so I could resuse them.
  • I incorporated them into my existing behavior management system, so I would just hand out a couple at the end of the day.

How to store them?

My favorite way to store brag bracelets is by clipping them together using fold-back clips. I'd lay them flat in a nearby drawer and take them out as I needed them. See the top image of this post for an example.

However, if you want to be a bit extra, you could make a brag bracelet display like this one. The labels are a freebie in my store and the little envelopes from Amazon.

Do they also come in color?

I'm so glad you asked! Yes, I made them in a colored version too because so many of you lovely people requested them. They work the exact same way, just a little more colorful.

How do I get them?
