3rd Grade Parents / Guardians:
This year I will be using a classroom management tool called ClassDojo. ClassDojo is a web based program which allows teachers to track students’ behaviors (positive AND negative) easily and efficiently. The program is based on points, and students can be given positive points for things like being on task, being respectful, participating, or working hard. On the other hand, points can be taken away if students are off task, talking out, or unprepared. My goal is to fully implement the program right away.
After students have been added to the system, there is a student access code I will send home to each student so that you and them can log on to the website. On the site, they are able to see how many points they have, which positive behaviors were noted, and which negative behaviors they need to work on. Quarterly, students will be able to go to a celebration for their hard work!
One of the greatest features of ClassDojo is that it allows me to send parents a “behavior and skills report” every Friday by e-mail. All you need to do is use the parent access code to get signed up. My hope is that this will help you better understand the progress of your student’s behavior on a week-to-week basis.
Please contact me if you have any questions!
