How I Use It
This is a behavior management and parent communication tool that has transformed my classroom from focusing on the negative behavior to focusing on the positive behavior. Students hear a ping when they have done some thing good and know they have received a point for their good deed. I like that this tool helps me give recognition to every child, even the student who is always making good choices. This tool is also a great parent communication tool. This tool communicates each child's behavior to the parents immediately if the parent is connected to your class. It also has a messaging portion that allows you to easily message parents with a simple click. The newest feature to this tool that helps with parent communication is a student portfolio in which the student can upload work or pictures of things they have done throughout the day. The parent, students, and teachers feel connected through this tool.
I love Class Dojo. I don't know how I would manage my classroom without. It not only serves my students, but my parent with updates about every aspect of our classroom from behavior to what we're learning.
