And so, here it is - I'm putting this post out there in hopes of receiving feedback and comments about using Brag Tags in the MIDDLE SCHOOL classroom.
My one-in-a-minion dollar question :
Could brag tags be used in the middle school classroom?

These are all so stinkin' cute !!!
I feel like I have seen so many posts this summer about Brag Tags. I began to think and consider using them in my classroom, had I still been teaching 3rd grade. But with moving to 8th grade, teaching 3 sections, and approximately 90 kids - ughhhh....... *insert blank face emoji*
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
I could see it working ... in it's own unique way. But I feel like it would also be too much of a hassle, managing giving out brag tags while still wisely spending a 80-minute block period teaching literacy - reading AND writing. It would also require A LOT of brag tags. Did I mention I'm teaching 3 sections? Did I mention that it'll be like .... 90 students ??
Would middle school students even care to receive a tag?
How much paper will this cost since it's 90 kids?
Will kids steal each others' when I'm absent?
Would kids be considered "cocky" for receiving a Brag Tag? I do NOT want to be the cause of that ...
So bloggers, what are your thoughts? I'm going from 3rd grade to 8th grade ... and I've got NOTHIN'! :( *insert crying emoji*
