Braggin' About Brag Tags... want to win some?

Earlier this year, I was lucky enough to receive a box of brag Tags from Kim at imagestuff.com.

If you aren't familiar with them, Brag Tags are like military "dog tags" that kids can earn for making certain achievements in the classroom.

imagestuff.com has a huge variety of colorful, completely personalizable, kid friendly tags!

I received the fully personalized MOTIVATION Teacher pack and LOOOOOVE it:

I also ordered these:
I have set up a BRAG TAG bulletin board in my classroom.

Each of my kiddos has a bunting that will have their name on it and each one will begin the year with an empty chain necklace hanging down.  I had to "double up" the chain so it looks short, but it's 24 inches long.  Look at this dedicated kiddo... three brag tags and two pony beads (see below for more info on that!) a month before the school year has even begun!
 
I give out awards every Friday and will just be adding BRAG TAGS as one of my weekly awards.  My kiddos will be able to add tags to their chains and wear them at school if they want, but will need to hang up back up at the end of the day.  At the end of the year, they can take them home!

Here are a few of my favorites from their site:

My school does a "Bucket Filler of the Month" from each classroom, so I just ordered some Bucket Filler tags to my shopping cart for whoever my "BFotM" is!
LOVE the "No Bullying" tag SO much!

And check out this one...  *LOVE*!  I love this brag tag, brag tag... I love this brag tag, brag tag... How many of you just sang that last part in true Pete style?

You have GOT to check out their website and all of the awesome tags they have.  There is truly something for everyone.  They are inexpensive but totally durable and such a small way to impact a kid's day in a BIG way!

I also bought a bunch of pony beads and will be having my kiddos choose a bead to add to their chain each time they reach the top of the clip chart!  I have plain, stars, shiny, and footballs so far!!!!



I had an extra container laying around (can you believe it... me?  An unused container?  See THIS picture if you're confused!) and this is how I'm storing my tags:
   


Here's the best part... you can win some BRAG TAGS too!!!!!!  Three lucky winners will each win 35 tags of the design of their choosing and 35 chains too!  So, go scope out their website, start thinking about which tag you would choose, and get back here and enter the giveaway!

I'm just going "old school" with this giveaway... you can enter three times... just leave me a comment for each of the following...

1.)  Be sure you follow my blog!
2.)  Follow imagestuff.com's blog so you can keep up with new designs and any announcements!  Click their name in step 2 or go to http://imagestuff.wordpress.com.
and
3.)  Follow imagestuff.com on Twitterhttps://twitter.com/imagestuffcom

That's it!  The giveaway will end on August 16... so you have lots of time!  Spread the word on your blogs and FB pages too... this is an amazing giveaway!  I know Brag Tags are going to be a huge point of pride and motivation for my 3rd graders!

So going to use that this year! So I just need to get to get some Brag Tags...Hint hint. Thanks for your willingness to share.
