BEHAVIOR PLANThe Learning Center will be using an interactive system to monitor behavior. This system is called ClassDojo. Please read below to find out what ClassDojo is and how it will be used again this year.
What is Class Dojo?
ClassDojo is a classroom tool that helps teachers monitor behavior in their classrooms quickly and easily. It also captures and generates data on behavior that teachers can share with parents. ClassDojo makes it easy to engage parents in their child's classroom performance, by allowing teachers to provide them with data from the classroom - with just one click!
How does it work?
ClassDojo is a fully confidential and online behavior system. Each student is assigned an avatar to represent them. When students demonstrate positive behaviors, the teacher simply clicks on their avatar, chooses the appropriate behavior from the list, and awards the student with a positive point. When a student demonstrates a negative behavior, the teacher can subtract points from the student’s overall point total.
How do I know how my child is doing?
The great part about ClassDojo is the fact that it provides parents with current and specific information regarding their child’s behavior at school. Parents receive a login code which allows them to access their child’s Dojo account anytime and view a report outlining exactly why their child is receiving positive and negative points. These reports can be viewed on a daily basis, weekly basis, or monthly basis. After parents have registered for a Dojo account, ClassDojo will send them an email every Friday, detailing their child’s weekly behavior.
How can my child be involved?
Students are also given a Dojo login code that allows them to access their avatar. They can go online and create and modify their avatar. They can also view their behavior reports.
How will ClassDojo be used in my child’s classroom?Each student will be assigned a Dojo avatar. Parents and students will receive a login code during the first weeks of school, which will allow them to register for their own Dojo accounts. PARENTS MUST REGISTER FOR AN ACCOUNT IN ORDER TO RECEIVE WEEKLY EMAIL BEHAVIOR REPORTS. If you do not have access to a computer and would like for me to send home weekly behavior reports, please just let me know.Throughout the school day, students will receive positive and negative Dojo points. Positive behavior will be rewarded based on a points scale. Students will be allowed to choose from a variety of rewards once they have reached specific point increments.
Positive Behavior Rewards:
25 Points: Pencils, stickers, erasers
35 Points: Small item treasure box
45 Points: Candy bucket
55 Points: Medium item treasure box65 Points: 20 minutes computer time, 20 minutes board/card game, 20 minutes game on smartboard75 Points: 20 minutes of free choiceAll Above 70 Points: Ice cream sundae partyPoints will be reset at the end of each month. This allows students to have time to earn as many positive points as possible. When students display negative behaviors, they will lose a Dojo point. Negative points will be reset at the end of each day. Each student has the opportunity to start each school day with a clean slate.Classroom Rules1. Be Safe2. Be Kind3. Be Responsible
