Diary of a Not So Wimpy Teacher: Organizing Brag Tags {Free Label}

Organizing Brag Tags {Free Label}

Tips to help you organize and store your brag tags

It is no secret that I love using brag tags to reward my students for positive behavior and meeting academic goals. I think that brag tags are the best classroom management system out there! They motivate kids to work harder. You can read more about how I use brag tags in the classroom by clicking HERE.

Yup! Brag tags are the bomb dot com! I like that they can be used in grades PreK-5!

Using brag tags means that you will have stacks of small pieces of paper. You definitely need an organizational system. Lots of teachers ask for brag tag storage suggestions and so I am here to give you some brag tag organization ideas!

Here are four easy ways to store your brag tags....

1. The Toolbox

A toolbox, often used for nails and screws, is the perfect container for those brag tags!

The tags fit nicely in the drawers. (Take a tag with you when you. go shopping because all of the tool boxes have different sized drawers.)

I love knowing what tag is in each drawer. There is no need to make fancy labels (except that I am addicted to labels). Instead, take one of the tags and push it into the front of the drawer so that you can see the words on the outside. Genius, right?!

I purchased this toolbox from The Container Store, but you can buy a similar one HERE.

2. Really Useful Boxes

I seriously tried to think of a different name for these boxes, but that's what they are called. What's in a name anyway?

These containers are the perfect size for my brag tags! I like the ability to take container out and set it on my table or counter to remind myself to look for students who should receive the tag. 

The Really Useful Box can be found on Amazon, but they are far cheaper at Michael's. 

3. Double Sided Craft Container

I seriously love this container because it is small, has a handle for easy transport and fits tons of tags!

The container has two sides. So you can keep academic tags in one side and behavior tags in another. Or just mix them all up, like I do. :-) Either way, you can fit lots of tags in this bad boy and it won't take much space to store.

I have seen these containers at Hobby Lobby and Jo-Ann's. You can also buy it for a good price HERE.

4. The Binder

I have a serious love for binders. I think that I love them almost as much as I love containers, but not nearly as much as I love tacos.

I grabbed some baseball card page protectors from Walmart. You can also grab them HERE.

The I stuffed a stack of the same tag in each pocket. Tons of tags will fit in this one binder! And it takes an inch of shelf space. WIN!
