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. I like to use this particular set as a tool when we are learning about the personality traits and qualities that lead to success that we are trying to develop within ourselves. We use the tags to discuss the behaviours we can use to become good classroom citizens, and then celebrate when we show these behaviours. The important thing is that students EARN their tags - we want them to be consciously reflecting and trying to become the best people they can be!
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.
This set includes 30 different tags that celebrate the development of positive personality traits that lead to success.
