Prepare your kinders for school expectations and celebrate some of their milestones with this set of French brag tags, especially geared towards our youngest learners!
Médailles merveilleuses (or “brag tags” in English) are a super fun, effective, simple classroom management technique, centred around noticing and rewarding the positive behaviours our students show and the great choices they make. At the start of the year, each student receives an empty necklace chain (I prefer the ball chain necklaces, which can be found inexpensively on Amazon). Throughout the year, they receive médailles (“dog tags”) to reward them for showing great behaviour and choices to add to their necklace. The aim is to collect as many as they can throughout the year and to continuously improve their behaviour. You decide how many you want to pass out each day. The important thing is that students EARN their tags - we want them to be consciously reflecting and making good choices about how they interact with others! I like to use this particular set as a tool the first few weeks of school, especially in Kinder. These tags focus a lot on “expected” behaviours at school, but behaviours that may not be obvious to our newest students. There are also a couple tags to celebrate some milestones - such as their first day of school, first time on the bus, and when they can open their snack/lunch on their own.
To keep your tags durable and lasting all year, I strongly suggest laminating them before you cut them out. Then, just punch a hole at the top of the tag and store them in an easily accessible place so you can grab them as soon as your students show great behaviour.
Brag tags do use lots of ink and laminating sheets - it's a good idea to make sure that you are able to print and laminate them before deciding to purchase :)
This set includes 20 different tags that celebrate your students' first week of school (*note that most are geared towards maternelle, but there are a few tags for other grades as well!)
