Class Dojo Review!

I feel like the prodigal teacher returning to what she knows! Ha!! I've missed you guys. It has been a busy past month with few blog posts. I've had sick kids, weddings, baby blessings and so many other things. Oh, and school started :)

Okay, so I've been using Class Dojo and I LOVE it! My students are still excited about it and I am enjoying how easy it is to use.

First...what is Class Dojo? Here is an explanation from the website.

Convinced yet? Well, here are some pictures and an explanation of how I use it in my classroom.

1- After creating an account you easily enter your student names and an avatar is automatically assigned to each student.

 2. I then printed two different sheets. The first was an access code for students to create their own avatar. The second was for parents to create an account so they can track their own child's behavior.

3. The implementation of Class Dojo was completely easy. I showed it to my students and they were instantly loving it! Here is how I use it in my classroom...

---I have six student computers that we use all the time. On one of the computers I always have Class Dojo up. If a student does something awesome (or not awesome) then I tell them to go get a point for whatever they did. The volume is turned up so I can hear if they five the positive or negative (there is a certain sound for each). If a student does go into the negative they are required to stay in during recess until their good behavior gets them out of the red and back into the green.
Easy peasy! You can reset the points whenever you want. I let them go for a week and if my students as a whole get up to a certain amount of points they get a "celebration" for the last 20 minutes on Friday.

I am loving Class Dojo and so are the parents of my students! I've received tons of positive feedback and no negative yet. 

Do you use Class Dojo?

  3. Love using Class Dojo. I haven't needed it with this group, as I have the same kids as last year and don't really need a behavior system for them. I will be going back to it next year though.

  4. I love how you leave one of your computers up and let the students record their points! One problem I have is recording the points sometimes in the business of class. I also love your suggestion of staying back from recess until the student is back in the positive. Thanks for linking up, friend! It is good to hear from you. :)
