Disciple Badges Kit

Suggested Price: $0.99

A fun classroom management system to acknowledge the student(s) intentional effort to live virtuously.
Materials Needed:   
Printed out cards, scissors, laminating material, hole punch, and chains.
Instructions:
  • Use Virtue Cards to teach the students about
  • the virtue.
  • Observe the student(s) behavior
  • Give student a virtue to place on chain when they have displayed the virtue
Note to Educator:  
If a student practices this virtue consistently, take the time to speak with him/her acknowledging their positive behavior.  It is very important to express your genuine observation and how you are attuned to their growth in virtue. Living virtuously is not a reward system but a life of discipleship.

Have you heard of “brag tags” for classroom management?  Mrs. Blausey, an experienced Grade 3 teacher from Spiritus Sanctus Academy, adapted this concept to incorporate the virtues in classroom management. The Disciple Badges are different because they affirm the student for consistent, positive behavior. Affirmation strikes deeper because it is rooted in the recognition of the student’s dignity as a child of God.

Praise is good but it can lead to surface responses of the child. Whereas virtue is the habit of doing good and strives to develop consistent and stable dispositions. Yes, this may sound like splitting hairs so let me put it very simply. When giving out Disciple Badges, take the time to look at the child in the eyes and express what you see in him/her, as opposed to quickly handing out the badge with the virtue. Your personal interaction with him/her will have a lasting, positive impact and help them discover their identity as a disciple of Christ.
