Classroom Dojo and Monster Theme

Right before Spring Break,  I decided to incorporate Classroom Dojo.

If you aren't familiar with it, it is a great classroom management tool that is free and it encourages good behaviors.  I have been using it along with my behavior clip chart.  The kids earn points for following the rules (that simple).  Then they can lose points for not following the rules.  The cool part about it is that when you give a point to a student the computer makes a ding that they know is for something good.  When a point is taken away it makes a different ding and they know that someone needs to make a better choice (that little ding was was so quick and every kid made sure they were doing the right thing when they heard it).   The kids are so excited about it and are always excited to see how many points they earn each day.  

At the end of the day, I pull up a graph that Classroom Dojo shows that shows the percentage of how they did in class.  It breaks it down by each rule.  We talked about what rules got a lot of positive points and what rules lost the most points.  Many students tell me daily that they are going to try to be the top point earner the next day.  :-)

If you haven't seen Classroom Dojo, make sure you check it out.  It is very easy to use and has very clear directions as well. 

My co-teacher has also used it this year and loves it as well.  We have talked about using it more next year and starting to use it at the beginning of the year.  Since we have decided to do that, we decided that we are going to have a monster theme.  I am so excited because I plan to use the Monster Theme Pack that Crystal made.  It is so cute and I am excited to decorate my classroom in it next year! 

Have a great week!!
