We use an online behavior/reward system called Class Dojo. Students can earn "Dojo points" by doing positive things in the room. They also can lose points for poor choices in the classroom.
As a group, we developed a list of behaviors:
# 1 Work hard everyday.
# 2 Be nice!
# 3 Be a good listener
# 4 Follow all directions the 1st time
# 5 Have fun and smile!
There are also consequences when students lose Dojo points.
1 point: Brief talk at recess and no sticker
2 points: Re-teaching of “his/her job” during recess (10 minutes) and no sticker
3 points: Re-teaching during recess (no recess)
4 points: No recess
5 points: Note home / call home / visit to principal
We always talk about the choices that the child made and discuss what we could do to make a better choice.
