Gamification Elements Badges, Badges Sheet, Badges Point Chart
Before you read the description, I want to let you know that I tested these badges with my learners and the results were amazing! My students (5th, 6th, and 7th graders) LOVED the idea, and they were working really hard to earn them. Sometimes they were begging me to have more points so they can earn the badge. And as a teacher, I got great results since my learners were doing their homework all the time (homework badge), getting their books and stationary ready before I come to class (readiness badge), and spoke more in English during the lesson since I’m their English teacher (Speaking English badge).
Badges: currently there are 31 badges. Each badge is related to either behavior of students (like punctuality, collaboration) or school subjects (like math, English, homework). Each badge has three levels: bronze, silver, and gold. More badges will be added soon. Plus, if you need a specific badge, let me know and I will add the badge right away so you can use it in your classroom.
Badges chart: there are 2 charts available in different colors so you can pick the one that fits with your classroom decoration. One that can fit 7 main areas (A3 size), and the other fits 4 (A4). You can choose what do you want to work on with your students and paste (look at the photos of the product for an example) the badges on the chart and stick it on the wall. You will notice that next to each name and under each badge that there are 5 boxes. This boxes can fit the points that will make the student eligible for the badge (first bronze, then silver, then gold.)
You can decide how many points they need to get before each badge. For example, you can fill the boxes with / and then with another \ which will make a X, then move to another box and do the same. When all the boxes are filled with X, the student gets the bronze badge. Then, you can erase the Xs and start over for the silver badge, and then the golden one. Or you can make it a bit harder by using more lines /, \, and then one horizontal line, and another vertical till you get a “star” shape. The options are unlimited; you can choose what you think is best.
Badges sheet: available in many colors. Give the sheet to the students, and when a student earns a badge, you give it to them, they cut it (they actually enjoy cutting it), and paste it on the sheet. You can either hang all the sheets on a wall in your classroom, or stick them on the students’ cupboards, or the students can keep them in their bags, so they can take them home and show off at home! (for a filled badge sheet, look at the products photos)
So what you need to do is: print the chart and stick it on a wall and give points to the students accordingly, distribute the badges sheets to the students, and print the badge and give to the students when they earn it.
