These 72 self-esteem building & growth mindset encouraging brag tags are perfect for gifting to students to remind them that they are awesome, unique, and important always and unconditionally. They also work as a great positive reinforcement classroom management tool; with messages broad & expansive enough so that all children can be recognized for their strengths, efforts, and worthiness. Hand these brag tags out when you catch students making a positive choice, or if they are having a tough day, share one that communicates to them that they are cared for, safe with you, and valued & accepted just as they are. The messages and words expressed on these coloring brag tags will fit right into your character education curriculums too.
Not only do you get to save ink with the black & white designs, these colorable brag tags double as a quiet art activity. Great to use as part of your rest and return / calm down boxes, for students who pay attention better when they are doodling, for indoor recess, and for students finished with their classroom work. Also a great tool for school counselors to use when interviewing or talking with students, relieving pressure from direct conversation. These brag tags can be used to discuss with your students how coloring (creating, & making art) can be a great coping tool to relieve stress. Or invite students to pick one out that describes themselves or is a positive affirmation or behavior they would like to practice and integrate into their lives, discussing what it means to them as they color.
As colorable brag tags, print on white paper to allow for student design. Or use brightly colored paper for a "pop" look. Card stock works best for durability. If using key rings or necklace chains as a means to collect brag tags, be sure to punch a small hole at the top of the cards.
