Pros: Sokikom is so easy to use; it really helps kids track and take responsibility for their own actions.

Cons: Not all kids are motivated by points reward systems, and that's what this tool swears by.

Bottom Line: It's such a speedy, simple way to easily gather and communicate data on student behavior; it can save you time and trouble.

Some teachers project the Give Behaviors page on the projector or interactive whiteboard. This allows kids to come up and record their own behaviors as they happen. This is very public, so you should take into account your own students and how this will be received. Alternatively, you can log in and document student behaviors on desktops, tablets, or mobile phones. Individuals or classes can earn tangible rewards as a result of accumulating a certain number of points. Some examples include earning the coveted line leader spot, a popcorn party, or a "Wear Pajamas to School" day.

Sokikom Classroom Management is a tool for tracking student behavior, available as an app through Edmodo or on Google's Chrome platform. You can sign up with your school info, then begin adding your classes into the Sokikom system. You can add students to a class and separate them into genders. Each student will have his own login and password, assigned by you. Next, you'll customize the positive behaviors you want kids to focus on, like participation, kindness, turning in homework, or being helpful. Alternately, you can take note of negative behaviors -- like being disrespectful, getting off task, interrupting, or not turning in homework -- or create your own behaviors.

Using the Sokikom Classroom Management tool is incredibly easy, so it's more likely to become a sustainable and regular routine in your classroom. It's a great way to reward and track behavior as an entire class, or monitor individual patterns. You can switch to “all” in the selection mode and quickly record that the entire class is on task. It's a great way to motivate kids; they'll be pleased when they realize that you're taking note of their positive behaviors, too. 

Sokikom Classroom Management also helps parents become a part of the classroom behavior conversation. They can access their child’s behavior report at any time. This helps teachers and parents open doors to clear communication throughout the year. As students get older, they may find the tool less motivating or somewhat babyish. However, elementary students will jump on board for a chance to earn positive behavior points.

Overall Rating

Engagement Is the product stimulating, entertaining, and engrossing? Will kids want to return?

Sokikom is well-designed, with fun, colorful icons that kids will appreciate. It's also really easy to set up and use. Kids will love getting digital kudos from their teachers.

Pedagogy Is learning content seamlessly baked-in, and do kids build conceptual understanding? Is the product adaptable and empowering? Will skills transfer?

Entire classes can work together to earn class points for good behavior. Kids are empowered when their own positive actions result in immediate accumulation of points. 

Support Does the product take into account learners of varying abilities, skill levels, and learning styles? Does it address both struggling and advanced students?

Kids, parents, and teachers can see data about their behavior over time. Tutorials make setup very clear, and you can pose specific questions in a forum.

Classroom management tool with common core math connection.
Setting up this class management system was very easy. It is engaging and colorful. I liked it. But there are other free choices that do the same thing as Sokikom. Class Dojo, Sumdog, and Buzz Math have free versions that work the same as Sokikom.

There is a mobile component that is a wonderful addition to the online program

If you have the funds to use this program, by all means buy it. You will be pleased with the functionality.
