ClassDojo

This is a behavior management resource that has come in handy during my years of teaching. ClassDojo allows you to use technology to motivate students. Students earn points for specific behaviors. Students can also lose points for negative behaviors.

In my fifth grade class I tie the points to the following reward system

25 points = write with a pen for the day

50 points = free homework pass

75 points = positive phone call home

100 points = special breakfast with Mrs. Sandler

ClassDojo also has a messenger feature. This feature allows me to have direct contact with the parents. Parents have access to their child’s Dojo account and can view their points and behaviors. I have the ability to message parents at any time. It has been a huge help in communication among myself and parents.
