I'm sure most of you have heard of Class Dojo and maybe some of you have even used it...but do you really know how awesome, fantastic, and terrific this free classroom management tool really is???
It is A-MA-ZING!!!
You see, I've taught for 13 years now and classroom management has always been my strength. I've had lots of different types of kiddos through the years and have used various plans and strategies to successfully manage them. And then this year I got a totally different crop of sweeties. So I was forced to reconsider the way I did things. The main management issue that I was having seemed to occur during center time. Early in the year I mentioned it to my principal and he said, "You should check out that Dojo thing that Miss B is trying." Well I'm an action kind of gal so that night I created an account and set things up. It couldn't have been easier and I just have to tell y'all...it truly saved my center time! My kiddos are so engaged, on task, and productive and it's really all due to Class Dojo!
Basically, it's a system that rewards points for positive behaviors and inappropriate ones. You can customize behaviors and tailor it for your class and their needs.
And the top point earners get their picture posted on the Class Dojo Star poster (nothing fancy but they LOVE it!!!)
