This year, throughout the school, we are using a new classroom management tool called ClassDojo. ClassDojo is a web based program, which allows teachers to reward children's behaviour and approach to learning, easily and efficiently.
The program is based on points, with the children being given positive points for things like: being on task, being respectful, participating, working hard or producing outstanding work. An individual record of these is built up throughout the year. Children can watch their own and the class totals grow during the week.
At the end of each week the 'Code Captains' collect in the totals for each team and the winning team is announced in the Friday assembly. Every class celebrates their individual Dojo Champion every week.
Dojo is also a fantastic way for parents and teachers to communicate. By joining ClassDojo families can send and receive messages and follow what the class has been up to during the week on Class Story.
