Is it possible to make brag bracelets that the students could wear?

Hi Jenni, thanks for your fantastic suggestion. Feel free to make a change resource request using the option at the bottom of the resource page! Great idea!

I’d love a black and white version if possible!

Hi Abbey,
This is a great idea. I will get a member of our design team onto it.

I love this idea. I will probably not use it on a lanyard but will get them to stick it on their chair or desk for the day.

Amazing resource, will use these so students can place these in their communication books. Quick and easy feedback, that doesn’t take time away from the teacher!

Great idea Debbie! Thanks for your lovely comment. Enjoy!
Kind regards,

While these are great, I am finding that the words being at the top of the tag means they are right where I need to punch a hole to put on the chain. I think in most cases the wording needs to be relocated on the tag.

Hi Keren,
Thanks for your suggestion! We have moved the text down slightly on most of the tags! Feel free to download this fantastic resource again!
Kind regards,

Would be perfect if we could edit the blank tags in Teach Starter with the choice of border, text and picture!

Great idea Patricia! We will see what can be done over the coming months! In the meantime, feel free to add this to your resource request!
Kind regards,

It would be terrific if these tags matched with maths skills ie I can count to 20, 50, 100. I can skip count to … etc etc

Thanks for your comment Patricia!

There are blank cards at the back of this resource so that you can write your very own goals for your students! Alternatively, please feel free to make this request using our request a resource function – https://www.teachstarter.com/request-a-resource/.

Resource Updates

  • Moved the text down on the 'brag tags' so that when a hole is put in the top for attaching to lanyards the text is not in the way.

    Change by Holly (Teach Starter) Jan 29th, 2017

  • - Font on page 20 has been updated to make the word "caught" read more clearly.
