"My school district has recently really started pushing close reading so this product went right in line with our reading goals. Also, being Chinese myself, I really wanted to explore Chinese New Year with my students and this was perfect! Thank you!"

Looking for a great tool for classroom management? Want to offer students an incentive for achievement in many areas of their day? I encourage you to try out Braggin Badges this year! Students collect them throughout the year as they accomplish and achieve in their education and relationships within the school. It's a great motivator for the students.
