AWESOME Buttons! Positive Reinforcement Strategy

Hi everyone,

I want to show you what I made yesterday because it is just to AWESOME not to share!

I had these buttons that I used at the Teachers Pay Teachers conference.
Many of us were wearing them and they were so fabulous because, without them, I'm not sure I would have recognized everyone! Not everyone looks like their teeny tiny Facebook pictures!!

Now that I am back home, I have been going through all my stuff and realized that I had all these extra buttons hanging around. I wasn't quite sure what to do with them until this FABULOUS idea popped in my head! HA!

I created these cute button inserts to use with my students.

I made 5 for girls and 5 for boys.

I plan on handing them out to my students when they do something OUTSTANDING. They will be able to wear all day! What better way to share their good news with everyone!

I can't wait to hear another teacher ask one of my students why he/she is so awesome! 
I can just picture the proud smile :)

I uploaded this file to my TPT store and it is FREE, because you're AWESOME ;)

You can find buttons at any craft store near you. I got mine at Michael's.
