Class Dojo is Awesome!! Focus on Positive Behaviors!

I'm sure many of you already use or have heard of Class Dojo, so this won't be news to your ears. But for those of you who haven't heard about gotta check it out!

Class Dojo is a free interactive behavior management program online (Class Dojo just released an Android app and iOS app too). It is super easy to use and my kids LOVE it! I've been focusing on the positive behaviors (this is the first week of school and my students have all been amazing thus far). The students can earn points for various things such as staying on task, participation, etc. They can also have points taken away for negative behaviors such as showing disrespect, being off task, etc.

I'm still thinking about what I will be doing with the points and how often they will be tallied up...weekly, biweekly, or monthly tally.

So throughout the day I have been awarding points and the students can't wait to log on to their account and check out their daily total.  I also like that the parents can log on and view how their child is doing. Class Dojo has some great data reports for parents and students.

One major "selling" point for the kid was that they could go in and change/create their own avatar. I'm a bit exhausted and don't feel as though I am explaining this site as best as I could, so you will just have to check it out and explore for yourselves. I'm positive you and your students will love it.

  2. I've checked out Class Dojo, but I haven't used it in the classroom yet. You'll have to keep us updated on it as the school year goes on! :)
