Blog 3: Class Dojo (My Classroom Buddy)

I recently came across www.classdojo.com


For those who may not be familiar, it is an electronic behaviour/ classroom management/ reward system.  Once set up each child in your class with have their very own avatar, and the aim is to gain as many points as possible.  Think sticker/ star chart, but electronic with sound effects.


I have a somewhat lively class, but as soon as they hear someone getting a reward they all want one, trying their best to get one.  I love it.  Simple as that.


Another good feature is that it gives you a details weekly/ monthly/ yearly breakdown of behaviour.  It gives you a percentage based on total rewards/ sanctions.   If my class have a week above 95% then they earn a class star.  If they earn 30 class stars, they earn a pyjama party, a goal they are very keen to reach.  We also do a lucky dip- where the pupil with the most points that week wins a small prize.


Oh yes... it's FREE!  Check it out.
