Behavior Beads!!! So what is a behavior bead? Well, these are a MUST in the classroom!!! Students LOVE earning and collecting these colorful tags/beads. If you want to call attention to your students for a varieties of reasons such as good behavior, when it’s their birthday, or when they master their sight words then these are the perfect incentives. I’ve decided to make some simple “behavior beads” (badges, tags, charms) for students to earn and collect. This is a set of “Behavior Beads” to give to your kiddos on the first day of school for 1st grade.
