Brag Board

Let's Brag On Each Other!


I've thought a lot about what I would like to do differently in 2013. I'm sure you have too. Life gets so busy and we put so much on our plates (me included) that we lose sight of what's going on around us. I really want to make a point to make other's feel special this year. Sometimes as teachers we don't always hear the "Thank You" or "Great Job" because we are all running around like hamsters in a wheel. For  me, I notice all kinds of great things going on around me but yet I don't always stop and tell that person. Let's make this year of "Bragging On Each Other".

I have to say that I love the school that I work at, and we are always trying to find ways to highlight something about someone else, even if it is little. Even on your worst day it is nice to see or hear a nice comment. So this year my school put up a "Brag Board". All month long we write special notes to each other and then our admin takes a picture and puts it on her Admin Blog. I love that. It hangs on the wall by our mailboxes which makes it very easy to go by and read.


 
I think I may go and buy one for my classroom and let my kids do this too. They would love it. I'll post some pictures as soon as I get that going. For now....take a look at my school's "Brag Board".  I'm sure all my sweet colleagues won't mind that I shared. :) They are awesome teachers.

So what about you? How can you implement somthing like this in your classroom or school?

  2. Love this idea! We do a caring colleagues box that the principal reads 4 notes at each staff meeting and those 4 teachers get sonic drinks!

  4. You are so right- this is a powerful way to build relationships in your school and classroom. We did something similar in our staff lounge (come check it out: http://alwaysalesson.com/2012/10/06/staff-brag-board/)

  5. We did comment cards in our classroom after reading The Lemonade War. It really forced the kids to think about appreciating everybody in the room. (A character in the Lemonade War describes a class activity like this.) It is such a good way to make everyone recognize something special about another person. I like the faculty recognizing each other even better! Caitlin (www.the-room-mom.com) Lemonade War unit is in my TpT store (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Theroommom).

  6. very cute! This would be great to add to our teachers lounge. We are in the midst of PBIS behavior programs and even the teachers get rewarded with positive behavior slips. On the back of a teacher slip, there are a few rewards to pick from: (1.) come to school :15 min after start time 1x (2.) Use visitor parking for 1week. (3.) Wear jeans on Friday. (4.) Leave at 3:15 every Friday for 1month.

  8. We actually developed a tool for people to do just that, share positive communication (such as acknowledgements, recognition, appreciation, word of thanks, etc.). If you want to check it out it is at... theappreciationboard.com
