Classroom Discipline Model:
Class dojo is an app used for home/school communication. Students are able to earn green points for positive behavior and red points for negative behavior. Students then earn "dojo dollars" and can use them to buy fun coupons (ex. buy a sticker or buy the teachers chair for the day). I also post pictures on the app from fun activities we do in the classroom. This is also a great tool to send quick messages back and forth.
Our classroom will also have a hanging clip chart with 7 colors on it, for students to manipulate. Each student will have a clip with their name on it. We restart dojo points and clips on Friday. Clips will begin on green, middle of the chart, and throughout the week as children exhibit positive behavior they will be able to clip up. If students are making poor choices, they will move their clip down.
PURPLE- “outstanding” exceeded expectations & moved up 3 times!!!
DARK BLUE- “stellar day” exceeded expectations & moved up 2 times!!!
LIGHT BLUE- “great effort” exceeded expectations & moved up 1 time!!!
GREEN- “ready to learn” followed ALL expectations for the day!!! YAY!
YELLOW- “think about it” made a choice that was not appropriate for the classroom learning environment. Everyone in life needs reminders, so if the behavior stops, there are no additional consequences for this level.
ORANGE- “make better choices” the teacher has given many warnings and may give an appropriate consequence for their actions. This could be a loss of privilege, writing an apology note, or whatever seems fit for that situation with that particular student.
RED- “parent contact” the student was consistently making poor choices that affected the learning environment. Parents will be contacted that day about their child’s behavior.
** Student should color their light in on their pride card daily.
