***Feedback from teachers***
"I love these close reads with a mystery picture. They are really engaging for the kids - and they make a great sub resource, too. Thanks!"
"I love that this is tied to reading, there are so many coloring options for math but not for reading! This is great!"
"I wish I would have found these sooner! My students will actually read so that they can color the mystery picture. They love this activity. Thank you SOOOOO much."

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.
